non-heinous textile

July 19, 2013

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:

handspun merino

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.

    Isn’t it nice to be able to look at where you were and see where you are now? Looking great !
