No, but my wrists are!
Blue Biffle Wristwarmers
Pattern: "Hand/Wrist Warmers" by Joelle Hoverson, Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Handspun 2 ply Fleece Artist Blue Faced Leicester, just under 2 oz
Notes: My first handspun, handknit project. Very cool. The two balls were spun at different times and thus were quite different. The second ball was a lighter weight and much more consistent. It made a slightly smaller wristwarmer so I added an extra row at the end before binding off.
I loves them. They also have a nice color gradation from dark at the wrist to light at the fingers. Because I split the roving lengthwise before spinning, the two balls are pretty close in colors; you could say they (more or less) match.
And now go gawk
There are plenty of spinners out there making amazing things. I'm still operating on a spindle so the goings is slow. But lookie here, Lisa Souza handdyes roving and yarn, and one of her customers sent her pictures of a WHOLE SWEATER that she spindled and knit. Let me say that again: a WHOLE SWEATER! On a spindle! Good golly miss molly, makes my jaw drop.
Back of Buttercup
The knitting is done on Buttercup! She just needs a good blocking because like so many Canadians, she just wants to curl (I learned this from the Yarn Harlot's readers). The color is off, but you can see the back in this photo. I see a bunch of faces and I want to draw in the mouths; what do you see?
