Its that time again … time to share this month’s handspun booty
Pictured above, is 6oz / ~660 yards of 2 ply fingering weight undyed BFL. I picked up 2 lbs of this lovely fiber at Spunky Eclectic a couple of months ago and June seemed like the perfect time to bust into it. I love the silky feel to this fiber and am thinking that I will use this for the West Knits Mystery Shawl KAL but only time will tell!
Next up was 4oz of merino in “Copper Hills” colorway by Greenwood Fiberworks. I decided to spin this up super bulky and thick and thin as I’m planning to knit an infinity scarf with this skein and the next 4oz of this beautiful fiber that I will hopefully spin during Tour de Fleece. This was a really fun spin and I know that it will be both a fun knit and a super cozy FO.
More fingering weight yarn here! This is 4oz / ~ 420 yards of polwarth in “Tribe” colorway by Greenwood Fiberworks fractally spun up as a 3 ply yarn. I really love fractal 3 plys because of the roundness of the yarn and the way that the colors blend and flow throughout. I’m thinking this will be the other skein of yarn for my West Knits Mystery shawl. It should be enough but I’m going to spin up my last 4oz just to be on the safe side.
And last but not least, is 4oz of 2 ply fingering weight BFL in the “Shades Of Burgundy” colorway by Greenwood Fiberworks. I used only a very tiny bit of this second skein of handspun to finish my Oaklet Shawl. I’m hoping to do a post on the finished shawl tomorrow
With Tour de Fleece underway now, I’m working toward my TdF goal AND my 12 lbs in 2012. Lots more yummy handspun yarns to come!
Are you spinning along with TdF or 12lbs in 2012? How are you getting along and what lovely fibers are you spinning? I’d love to hear all about it.
