I’d like to preface this post by saying I am not a blogger. By that I mean that I stink at keeping this thing going! I’m so busy making all the time that it is a “point my phone at it and take a pic” for Instagram if I’m lucky! 😄 so now that I’ve said that I want to talk YaRN!
I make yarn like this:
These are obviously two different beasts all together! I won’t bore you yet with the technical details of How it is done because I want to talk about knitting with my own handspun! For a very long while I could only crochet. I love crochet, don’t get me wrong, but the resulting fabric isn’t able to showcase a color gradient or the finer details of an art yarn as well. So I had to learn!!
It took forever until someone said some magic words and suddenly it all clicked. It is truly amazing when that little thread of information gets woven into your psyche and the Aha moment takes hold. So now I think I’ve got this down as a newbie and I’m finally braving my own handspun wool yarns. It is a real treat too, check out the beginning of the bell cape I’m designing as I go.
Some of the yarns may or may not work as I hope they will together but the only way to find out is to go forward!
Thanks for reading :)
