I present here my first ever bona fide hand spun yarn.
I’m pretty impressed with myself and I’m engergised to do a heap more spinning now that I have seen the finished product. Bev thinks I will end up with enough yarn to make a beanie. The question is… are my knitting skills up to the challenge?! It has been 8 years since I knitted with a pattern.
I’m headed back to East Gippsland tommorrow so I plan on dropping back into Jumbuck Wools… I might even get some dyes (or is this the slippery slope??).
As thanks to Bev who has devoted two nights to my spinning education I have offered to make her a knitting bag. She sounded pleased with the idea.
If you read the original version of this blog you will remember that I planned to start a little production of bags made with my hand dyed fabrics and there was a shop interested in selling knitting bags… well I’ve done nothing towards this goal. So this week I will make my FIRST real knitting bag with pockets, perhaps this will be the start of something.
I will photograph the bag and send it to the shop lady and see if she is still interested.
How’s that for a plan!
