WIP Wednesday – Handspun Daybreak II

Long time no see everyone!  November has turned out to be an even crazier month than I had originally anticipated.  I’ve decided that this is the year to step out and actually participate in some of the craft fairs around here so I have been busy dying wool, spinning yarn, and printing patterns to stock my table.  I spent a very enjoyable day last Sunday at MachPhail Homestead in Orwell and I’m looking forward to the craft sale this Friday and Saturday at the Wellness Center in Montague.

With all the preparations for the sales, I’ve still managed to get in some of my own spinning and knitting.  This week I’ve started on a second handspun Daybreak (and I feel another one in the near future as well!).  This shawl is for a kettlebell buddy :-)

I chose 6oz of lovely natural BFL that I had in my stash and dyed it up in shades of green, hints of gold, and brown.  Then I decided that it needed to be spun up into a plump and bouncy fingering weight singles.  I’m really pleased with how the yarn turned out.

I paired it up with some plain white handspun that I had in my stash and got right to knitting.  I’m on stripe 12 of 16 now so I’m really cruising along.  I’m hoping to give the finished shawl to my friend next week.

How had your November been so far?  Are you getting lots of crafting in?  Do you sell in craft fairs?  I’d love to hear all about your month so far!
