Right now, since I'm just learning, my hanks are all small, so I'll have to invent ways to use them.  But the one I posted today, while only 41 yards, once I get all the rest of the fiber spun should be close to 100 yards, and roughly 5 oz.  That's pretty good for a scarf or something.

I've posted several FO's from handspun in the spinning and knitting galleries. For those crazy yarns I suggest you check out the link below for some amazing creations from creative handspun.

I can't decide what to turn Mermaid's Castle into! I'm thinking that a scarf might be good but I have a massive collection of them! I'm open to suggestions if anyone's got one! Although, I am just happy to stare at and occassionally stroke my yarn for now!!

I should know better than to ask questions. I get a good answer and I think "oh, now I must learn that craft because the problem I saw does have a solution. Cheesy

what about fingerless gloves/armwarmers? i know it's not really the season, but, if it's a thinner yarn, might not be too bad

Here's the flickr search results when you query FO + handspun. There's some great inspiration to be found.

So much prettiness this week.
My contribution:

100 yards, mill ends from the Sheep Shed, dyed with food coloring drops, spun up, and then Navajo plied.  I think this is my new favorite plying method.  No measuring to get even amounts, not transferring to separate bobbins, just tie a loop and go.
