A couple months back, I got the most awesome skein of handspun from inle_rah in a swap.
I promised myself I would use it strictly to knit stuff for myself, because I usually end up neglected
So far, I've knit an Urchin and a pair of Fetching from it, and I am wondering what to do with the little bit that's left over.
So here they are:

This is the original skein, by the way. Every inch of this yarn is just riveting.

I love that yarn! Do you have the label at all? I would love to know what kind that is!

I love that you did the hat from side to side instead of up. It shows the colors off so much better!

Those turned out great.  I think this may be the first time I have seen any of my handspun knit up into anything. I feel like such a proud mama.  Smiley

I can't be certain, but I am pretty sure the fiber was merino (most of my fiber is) and it was handpainted in pretty much every color of Jacquard acid dyes.  I had no idea how it was going to spin up, since I rarely do things in that many colors, and even less of an idea of how it would knit up.  I think I kind of love it.  Am going to have to try and replicate it, I think.
