Handspun Friday - some Falkland
I've another big spinning project going on. I've got 54 of FatCatKnits Semi Solids on Falkland to play with. Each is a 2oz bundle. I'm spinning them with a blanket in mind. I'm only going to start knitting once all of them are done.
I've got seven finished so far. I know, this will take a while, since I'm doing other stuff in between. But so far I'm loving it.
The skeins average 127yds, chain plied, 2oz.
I've spun them from lightest to darkest, and had the feeling, I was spinning the same thing over and over, even though they are all different shades.
I've already picked the next 7 colors, they are not in this picture anymore. This time I've picked them randomly, to make spinning more exciting. So far, I'm loving every colorway, they just look so awesome up close and personal. This is really a fun project.
I'm not sure what blanket it will be. I have something in mind, but don't know if I can do it yet. But that's a long way off!
Have a wonderful weekend!
