So when I spin, I seem to really like to have a good idea of what I want the yarn to become. It might change as I am spinning but in the end, I feel better about it if the yarn has a purpose.
That brings us to September Twilight. It had a purpose as I was spinning along, but I realized quickly that it wouldn’t work out as I had planned. The yarn is particularly delicate and won’t hold up to much frogging. I also got a lot less yardage out of it than I anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, it is beautiful and I enjoyed spinning the alpaca. I will certainly do so again. Next time I will buy enough so that I can ply it and make it stronger. I would say that it is somewhere between a lace and fingering weight as single ply.
So it desires a pattern. I have chosen a couple and now is your chance to give some feedback should you so desire.
Ice Queen. I know some people who have knit this and loved it. I also know that I could probably get two of them out of what I have.
Palette. Specifically designed for handspun. The yarn looks larger but I could probably accommodate it to work with what I have.
I do. I would need to make some modifications and the sleeves would be shorter than these, but it is an awfully pretty little shrug which would be perfect for spring.
