May Handspun

IMG_1480

I can’t believe that it is time to share another month’s spinning already.  May really seemed to fly by!

My first spin was 4oz of Polwarth in “The Giving Tree” colorway by Northbound Knitting.  It is a beautiful progression in light and dark greens and brown.  LOVE!   This baby was spun up as an N-plyed fingering weight yarn.  I’m thinking that it would really like to be mittens.

My next spin was 4 or my 8oz of BFL in “Dijon” colorway by Spunky Eclectic.  This was spun as a fingering weight single and will be paired up with my Pheasant in BFL/Silk for the Fine SAL/ Romi KAL happening in the Spunky Eclectic group on Ravelry.   If you’re interested in joining the fun, you can find out more info at the previous link and jump right in!  This gal is planning on knitting Carson.  It is going to look so yummy in Pheasant & Dijon!

The next was a “just-because-i-can” spin.  I had 4oz of really lovely BFL in my stash that I decided to spin as a laceweight single.  I’m planning on dying with a semi-solid and eventually knitting it into a fun shawl.  I don’t have any specific pattern picked out yet but I know that I REALLY wants to be a pretty lace shawl.

And last but not least is 4oz of really gorgeous fiber that I picked up at Pembroke Farms during the Celebration of Sheep and Wool.  I got to practice my long draw and I got a beautiful and light, bouncy, bulky weight 2-ply.   It was such a delight to spin!  I’m looking forward to my next trip back to the farm so I can pick up more of this delightful fiber.

So May’s spinning total was 16oz, bringing me up to a total of 6.5lbs so far this year.  I’m half way to my goal!
