So I had a look through my stash and decided to cast on with this yarn which I spun in the Tour de Fleece earlier this year.
I did a 'fractal spin' on this fibre meaning I split the braid down the centre and spun one half from end to end on one bobbin and the other half I split into 5 smaller strips and spun onto another bobbin and then plied the two together, I knew there would be a striped effect to my yarn and thought that the sideways construction of this pattern would show up the stripes in an interesting way.
This is the first time I have knit with my handspun for ages and I am so enjoying it! I'm having to hold myself back from spinning all the things so that I can knit with some more!!
I'm really enjoying seeing how the yarn is knitting up and the pattern is as fun to knit as it looks :)
I'm joining in with the Spinning Show and Tell on Crafts from the Cwtch again so pop over there for lots more spinning related loveliness :)
What was your last handspun knit or do you have one planned that you are exited to start? Do you spin with a project in mind or like me do you just spin to fill a basket? :)
Ooh, by the way, speaking of The Big Bang Theory and giant obsessions have you seen Amy Farrah Fowler's crochet blanket? I am so desperate to hook one of those!!
