This is my second go at spinning Falkland wool and I have to say that it is very nice to spin. I'm hoping that the knitting is just as pleasant. I think I'm going to combine this skein with the one from last week for a nice stripey scarf. I don't have a photo of the fiber before I spun it up, but I will for the next round of handspun.
I spent part of last weekend cataloging and photographing my fiber stash so I would have some before photos to share. I had a little more fiber than I realized, but I don't think that's bad. And fiber is good for the diet right? And, if I'm going to so you new handspun each week I actually need it.
I'm also officially changing the my Friday offering of yarn to "Handspun Friday". I've managed to have a new skein of handspun each Friday since the beginning of this year and I plan to keep going with that theme instead of commercially spun yarn. The problem isn't spinning the yarn - but figuring out what to knit with all these single skeins.
