FO Friday – 1lb of Handspun

21299374485_bd4e9d7521_oI *might* have been on a bit of a spinning binge this week. 

First up is something I haven’t done in a while … a combo spin.  Seeing all of Karen’s gorgeous combo spins on Facebook has definitely inspired me to work on one myself.  The spin above is made up of 4oz of Targhee in “Frost Bite” colorway and 4oz of South African Fine Merino in “Blue Door” colorway, both of which are the color genius of Spunky Eclectic. These two colorways are almost MADE to play with each other.  I had originally been saving these for a Less Is More Cardigan but am very happy that I chose to do the combo spin with them instead.

What have you been up to this week?  Did you finish anything crafty?  Do tell!
