1  Urchin from handspun wool in Knitting: Completed Projects by ricstew on: January 17, 2008 10:36:27 PM
Hi everyone! This is my first knitting post Smiley

I originally posted my first handspun in the fiber section. Someone suggested that I make knittys Urchin from the wool.

So here it is! What do you think?

2  My first yarn... I am now addicted :) With finished urchin. Pic heavy in Spinning: Completed Projects by ricstew on: January 16, 2008 05:28:00 PM
Hi everyone!
I have been lurking in the background for a while, I just love looking at fiber Friday with everyone's fantastic yarn Smiley You have inspired me to give it a go myself (I am usually just a knitter). So here is my first yarn that has actually worked for me. It is made from almost raw wool, it has been washed but needs a lot more before I would wear something made from it.

It's all very thick and thin and a bit lumpy, but I sort of like it! What do you think?

Well I finished the Urchin!

Haha, I think it is going to keep me very warm Smiley Comments appreciated!

Hi Julie
I hope this works!

This is what I started with a square shape and a curved edge

The red stitching is the stay stitching. It is inside the seam allowance ( which is the purple dots)

here is where you snip into the seam allowance. I have notched this out but normally i would just make a snip into it almost to the stitching.

Then pin it together stretching it gently around the square side. You will still have a corner poking out a little

then stitch together. When you get to the curve pull the little gathers out of the way towards the back. Its easier to do this with the needle down.

This has been stitched. You now have 2 stitching lines

trim your seam allowance....

turn right side out and press! It doesnt matter if you are making bags or clothes the process is the same. It does take some practice.......a good chance to use up scraps!

i made this from scraps. its basically a Jordy but the outside is pieced together.
