Look! I’m knitting with my handspun!
Since I finished the yarn so quickly, I decided to upgrade to the long track event and finish a project with the yarn before the flame goes out. I can totally make it.
It’s a shallow triangular shawl, alternating the handspun with charcoal Cascade 220. I didn’t think I had quite enough of the handspun to make something as substantial as I would want, and I think the Cascade 220 presents a good solution.
At this point if I bound off I would have a respectable something, so I can totally do this. I just have to decide two things:
1) How to end it. Should I end with a straight black edge? A crocheted handspun edge? I have a few different ideas.
2) What should I call it? I’ll write up the “pattern” such as it is on the blog when I’m done, it’s super simple. The idea is to let 150 yards of handspun in a wonky DKish weight really shine. All the names I can think of are way corny.
Thanks for all your tips on spinning wheels. It really helped me focus my thinking!
