1  Mittens from handspun in Spinning: Completed Projects by ArianesThread on: March 15, 2008 10:13:56 AM
This is the first thing I knit from yarn I handspun! So cool! I spun the yarn from BFL roving in Burning Bush from Spunky Eclectic. Next to the mittens is what is left from the yarn. I had about 1" left for each mitten at the top - I had to weave these 1" and felt them immediately in order for the mitten not to fall apart.



 TFL!

You guys are such an inspiration! I love Fiber Fridays!

Here is my second real yarn. It was spun from some BFL roving from Spunky Eclectic in the Burning Bush colorway. 92 yards, worsted to chunky. It should be self-striping.



The colors are slightly off. The green is more greyish, and the orange is more burnt than it looks in the pic.

I understand what you mean. That's what I started doing but I found it hard to figure out whether to do the pattern stitches on the "extra" edge stitches. Let's say you find the tip of the first diamond, and there are 4 stitches before that stitch, then deciding what to do with those 4 stitches also depends on the last "extra" stitches, ykwim?

I frogged the whole body (all 12 rows of it LOL). I delimited the number of stitches I need on the chart and before starting a row, I check if my yos and k2togs balance. So far so good, I have 16 rows done, but only 1 decrease row (I'm doing the vest). I'm crossing my fingers that it will be smooth sailing from here.

Here's my progress so far. I'm using Elann Silken Kydd in Clove, and I'm knitting with 3.0 mm (size 3) (!) needles.

You guys make gorgeous yarn!

I'm so proud to have something to share on Fiber Friday! This is my second handspun yarn. It's a merino/silk blend. I don't know what possessed me to spin it so thin, it took me forever (I've been working on it on and off since September!). I don't know, it just *wanted* to be spun thin!

I'm happy with the result except that there are like 10 knots in these 180 yards or so. As soon as I didn't keep them taut, they twisted on themselves and sometimes I wasn't able to untwist them without breaking them. Oh well. I'm still super proud of it!



With a penny, to show scale:

5  Made my first CD spindle this afternoon and... in Spinning: Completed Projects by ArianesThread on: August 11, 2007 09:06:14 PM
... here's my first yarn! This was really just to try my hand at spinning but I'm quite proud. I know I have a long way to go, but for my first couple hours of spinning, I'm happy.
