Further spinning adventures

Friday night, I decided it was a spinning sort of night. I spun up the entire bag (it was four gloriously pre-drafted ounces) of merino/mohair mix that I bought from Heather at Kristal Sunnyside Wools on the Cape in Mass back in February. There’s a video of her farm that was taken recently here.

Here’s the fiber, pre-spinning
Brewster MA Yarn

And here’s a cute little skein, all spun up. Isn’t it just darling? I really liked the look of the single so decided to throw caution to the wind and knit with the single.

I’m making the Misti Chunks and Ruffles scarf from my handspun – you can stalk my progress on Ravelry here. It’s another great use for the spiffy but expensive size 13dpns I bought for the mitterns! Here’s what I plowed through Friday night:

Beautiful! I love the way that it’s showing off the yarn (and I’m also still in love with Saturday morning’s lighting!).

About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.

    Thanks for visiting me and my lambs, Kristy. Your photos of your projects are lovely. I’m impressed by how much you accomplish (and wish I could find time to finish projects!). Happy spring.
