more hand spun
And here is some more hand spun i finished yesterday.
151 yards of "oh,so soft",squishy,yummy BFL.
It's a worsted /bulky weight with 7 wpi.Thick and thin but not extreme.
I love the colors,they are intense but muted;fall colors.
I don't usually knit with thick yarns like that so i will be offering
this at my shop.If i don't sell it i might use it for weaving a scarf or knitting a cowl.If i do weave with it i will use the thinner green yarn from the prvious post as warp.I dyed the two to color compliment each other.
Im another one of those middle aged women who has seen it (or almost)all.
Originally from Germany i came to this beautiful country 35 years ago.
I have two children and three grandchildren, two boys and a girl..(Yickes! I'm really getting OLD!)
I am also a 8 year breast cancer survivor.
During my treatment for this nightmare disease i started knitting again after several years break.Since then i also started spinning, preparing my own raw fibers(dyeing, carding),and my newest addiction:weaving.
I opened up my etsy store in 2006 .
