This is the follow-up to my post about the Heinous Textile, the thing I knitted with the very first yarn I ever hand spun. The thing I pretty much filed away as a “learning experience.”
Here is the most recent yarn I hand spun (using a drop spindle) and the thing I knitted from it:
It’s dyed merino. See how straight and slim that tail of yarn is? Yay, practice! The thing is from this ruffly scarf pattern I got from Jane Austen Knits. Didn’t have enough for a whole scarf, so this will end up being a collar or hairpiece or something. But yes, this is what progress looks like.
