Handspun Friday - Mixed Blessing September 2010
This is one of my favorite handspun yarns from last year. The fiber was club fiber from FatCatKnit's Mixed Blessings September 2010.
It's Falkland wool, 10oz. I made 8oz of it into 2 skeins of worsted weight yarn, 2-ply, and a total of 365yds.
I also wanted to see how it looked navajo plied, so with the left over fiber I made a little skein of 120yds (2oz), which can be found in my shop.
I like them both.
It's been snowing last night, and we've got about 10cm of fresh snow. The boys enjoyed it, even though it seems to be much colder today, because after not even five minutes out, they started to lift their paws. Nevertheless, they love it!
And Denny says, "Come play with me!"
Have a wonderful weekend!
