This is it - the last skein for my shawl. I've decided to go for the Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl pattern. There is something about the pattern I really like and maybe when I'm finished I'll change my mind about triangular shaped shawls.
I'm going to cast on for this project over the weekend. I'm really looking forward to knitting with some of my handspun. I knit a hat using some of my handspun before, but this actually seems a little more substantial and a better test.
I'm also going to do some spinning. I need to pull out all my stashed fiber and see what I can come up with. I'd like to go ahead and spin for another project but I also like just sitting down to spin up a random skein. It might also be nice to go ahead and take photos of all the fiber now so I can have before and after shots for spinning projects. Would it be interesting if I posted a picture of the fiber and finished yarn?
