Handspun Friday - Lumber Jack

Hey, thanks everybody for your kind words about our newly renovated home! :o) Every day we are getting closer to the finish line.

Today I have some FatCatKnits Falkland in the colorway "Lumber Jack" to show you.
Here's the fiber:
FCK-Falkland-Lumber Jack-8oz
And this is what I did with it:
FCK Lumber Jack - Falkland
I had 8oz of lovely Falkland in the colorway "Lumber Jack" a progression dyed fiber, to make gradiated yarn.
It's two skeins, 2-plied yarn, with a total of 698yds. I think it's about DK weight yarn. I need to find my WPI measuring tool.
This is also going up in my shop for your knitting pleasure.
We are having duct cleaners here today. Yesterday the plumber came and connected the faucets in the powder room, and in the kitchen! I'm very excited, everything looks great. The counter top is installed too. Coming Monday they'll put up the back splash tiles, and the hood. After that we just have to wait for the replacement cabinet doors (the ones which were scratched at some point, and the one cabinet, which was not built the way we ordered it).
I wish you all a wonderful Fall colored weekend!

Hey Monika, your handspun is wonderful and looks so stripy! Your renovated home looks good, too, I hope you won't have to wait too long before everything is done.
Have a great weekend!

Wow, more amazing yarn. I think I could endlessly look at roving and never guess what it looks like once it's spun.

By the time winter sets in, your house will be cozy, warm and wonderful. I'm glad you're seeing the light at the end of the reno tunnel.

And wow! How'd you get so much yardage out of Falkland?!

That's me ~ I'm a Lumber Jack!!!

Two of my fav colors - blue and red :)

BTW had a rough weekend with you know who. When in for the big N surgery on Sunday - it went wrong - after 1 hour closed him up. On Wednesday we see a specialist for a major abdominal surgery :(((

PS I love reading about Denny - that reference to the crocodile roll made me laugh. Totally can see it.
