11  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / My first handspun project! on: November 10, 2010 12:58:29 PM
This is the first time I've knitted with my handspun, but my boyfriend's best friend REALLY wanted a beanie to wear while he does poi, and when he saw the stuff I'd made with my wheel, he practically begged me to make it from handspun yarn. I didn't get a picture of one of the yarns, and the project took up less than I expected, but here you go!

The end! Cheesy I'm quite proud.

Wow, Scarlett O'Hara would be proud! I wish I knew what I did with my Strawberry Shortcake curtains!

I think the multicolored would be cool as a scarf, or as part of a scarf if there's not enough. Definitely a stand-out accessory. I totally want to make a cute little hat out of the whitish and the fall-colored one. They'd be too cute as a little cloche or something.

Ooh, zombie, I love the colors of the first yarn. They're so subtle and cute. That yarnghetti looks tasty. Hope the kids gave you some sauce to go with Wink

Cheyenne, I'm loving the colors in that roving, and they spun up really nicely. ^_^

Since no one else has started it yet, I'll kick off this Friday with my first decent and even yarn on my new wheel. It's undyed BFL.

This is my first two wheel-spun singles plied on the wheel. It's the same undyed BFL and brown mystery mill ends.

This one's my secondish (I think) yarn, also mystery mill ends. I tried to steam it over a pot of boiling water, but I accidentally scorched it and now it smells like burnt hair (ew!) and has gross little crispy brown fibers all over it.

This one's also BFL. I dyed one batch orange kool-aid, the other one fruit punch kool-aid, and hand-carded them together. It's my first attempt at long draw, and it was a pain in the butt, but I like how it looks. My mom calls it September Sunrise.

And this is my brand-new Kiwi! Love her so much <3

That's all I got this week. I'm excited to see what other people have made; I've got bunches of fiber sitting around and I sure could use some inspiration. Wink

I've got it! I haven't stained it, and because of work (eww!) I haven't gotten to play with it nearly as much as I want. (Stupid work. It's also why I've been curiously absent.) But I have some skeins spun up and I'm going to post pics of them and the wheel when I get a chance. ^_^

I've finally got a job and, with the paycheck I got last night, I'll have enough money to afford a brand spanking new Ashford Kiwi. Got a couple questions, since I'm not going to be able to really buy it until Monday or so.

Should I spend the extra $105 to have it finished, or should I finish it myself? My concern here is that I'm going to screw it up somehow, but it might also be fun to do. Is it difficult? Will I mess up my wheel if I'm not the best at finishing it? And would it be worth the extra hundred to be able to play with it more quickly?

So excited!
