Handspun Friday - Koi

Today we have some variegated BFL fiber dyed by Jennifer of  Nest Fiber Studio (shop updates are like a feeding frenzy, one has to be really fast to get some of the fiber).  Isn't it lovely?

I turned 4oz into chain plied yarn, 302yds of yummyness.

We've received the second clue of TTL Mystery Shawl 2012 one day earlier. I don't expect to be able to show the next two clues stretched out like that. Can't wait to see how this shawl looks finished. I love knitting with this yarn. It's Wandering Cat Yarns Continental Cat in the colorway Lilac. So nice and soft.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

That yarn is absolutely beautiful I wish I could find a skein like that to buy! And I love how your shawl is turning out and the lovely color that you choose.

That fiber is lovely! The colors are just great.

And I don't know that I'd have the patience for a mystery KAL, but I guess I should try one before judging.

Love your shawl though. Very pretty.

It's beautifully spun ~ and will be even more amazing knit up!!! I'm always a day late and a dollar short when it comes to KALs so instead I'll have fun enjoying watching your progress :) BTW that pic of Denny cuddled with your shawl is too precious ~
