Handspun Cladonia, pre-blocking, originally uploaded by earthchick.
Just a little glimpse of my latest handspun shawl, pre-blocking. This is Cladonia , yet another Through the Loops pattern!
Originally I was going to stripe my handspun Hello Yarn Romney “Timber” singles with my handspun Spunky Eclectic Romney “Sumac” singles.
But in the end I decided that there was enough golden within the “Timber” itself to just stripe it all from the one yarn. So I have all of my “Sumac” (gorgeous yellow!) left over and actually a good bit of the “Timber,” with many visions of more handspun goodness dancing in my head.
Can’t wait to get this blocked and shown to you!
I’ve got my wheel, and I’ve been doing a lot of spinning on my own, but I can’t wait to go to some spin ins so I can sit down and learn how everyone else does this. My yarn, like my knitting, is so tight. I want to loosen up, but when I try the yarn doesn’t stay together. This is beautiful.
