Handspun Friday - Curiosa

I spun the singles for this yarn during the week long frenzy I had a while back. I think it shows a little bit. The finished yarn is a little more uneven than usual. But the good this is that I don't think it will make a difference once it is knitted.

I also really like the colors. The colors in the skein gives me a very spring like effect even though it is 100% wool. The yarn is soft and squishy too.

I have no idea what to knit with this. In fact, that is becoming a problem with a lot of my handspun. But I am working on developing a solution to my growing problem. Hopefully I will be able to implement and share the plan soon.

Lovely colores. I've never spun Rambouillet before, but I have some in my stash. Looking forward to it.
Are you going to sell your handspun? :o)

Reminds me of leaves just barely popping out of the bud .. yumm!

And yes, knitting does cover all sort of sins. The voice of experience. :-)

A knitting plan, eh? I'm looking forward to hearing about it.
