This will be a quick post as I’ve already twice forgotten to save and closed the tab.
This is the absolutely gorgeous, beautiful, 3.5oz of sparkly beaded mohair hand spun from LavenderSheep (Yvonne).
Anyway, I decided to make it a string of firsts..
Since this is my first “won” yarn, my first handspun (not /mine/ but..), my first beaded yarn…
I figured, why not make my first scarf? ((yes, I had made E one a year ago, but it really doesn’t count. He never wore it, I frogged it and along with the rest of the yarn I own like that (acrylic “homespun”) it will go to making animal blankets.))
So, I went to Stephanie’s site and looked at her one row handspun scarf ((what is also intresting is that this is yarn has a sibling up in toronto with Stephanie, see also here)) and said “self: this is possible”. And I cast on.
This yarn is gorgeous to work with. I’m loving it. I like how it feels. I love how it looks.
I now have about 6″ of scarf… a long ways still to go, but maybe it’ll be done before it’s really cold out. :) Thank you Yvonne!!! It’s beautiful. I hope one day to spin a quarter as well as you.
I will talk more about other knitting, crochet, and (gasp!) spinning later in the week.
