While taking progress pictures of my Barndom shawl and my Inglenook socks for today’s post, I came to the realization that I hardly ever take work-in-progress shots of my spinning. So, for this week, I’ve decided to forgo the pictures of my knitted items and feature my spinning.
Pictured above is yarn that I am VERY excited about spinning up (but really, when am I NOT excited about handspun? lol). This is my first experience with both Rambouillet and Hello Yarn hand dyed fiber. Love, love, and LOVE! The Rambouillet is soft and fluffy, quite like merino to spin, and the color in “Posturing” colorway are to die for. I am spinning this fiber up with the intent of navajo plying it into a beautifully bright and springy fingering weight yarn for, you guessed it, more awesome handspun socks. For you spinners out there who have never made a pair of socks out of their own handspun, I highly recommend that you do. I’m certain that you’ll be hooked!
What projects are you working on now? Tried anything new and exciting recently? I’d love to hear all about it!
