Oh, MAN, it was a delicious fiber. And I really enjoyed spinning it up:
It came out to 320 yards of bulky-ish thick-and-thin and I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. I fell in love with this bulked-up version of the the New New Shale Cowl .
I whipped this up over vacation in August and loved wearing it once fall rolled around. I loved it so much that I couldn’t wait to make another one – it was the inspiration for my Sweetgum design. I think this sort of thing is a surprisingly functional piece and a great way to use a small amount of handspun. Maybe there will be even more in my future.
