You knew it wouldn't take long for me to crack into that skein of handspun, didn't you?
Almost as soon as I got it home, I wound it on and cast on. Just a simple toque. I've only got 128 yards, so I'm just knitting straight until the ball starts to look low, then I'll start decreasing. With any luck, I'll get a little bit of slouch to it.
It always amazes me how much fibre changes in the spinning process. From the braid, to the skein, to the knit - each step looks so different
It's knitting up nicely! And I think I'm going to have to dye up some yarn to make some matching mitts... or maybe I can get Mom to spin up another braid for me...
