I had no idea that finishing something substantial would make me feel this good. I have remembered that this is one of the reasons I knit and spin, that rush of satisfaction that I get when I wind that handspin into a (un)tidy skein or weave in that last end on something I simply cannot wait to wear!
Sorry...back to the handspun...
This is handspun from 100% Romney wool, it is 2-ply DK weight and about 220 yards. It has a rough edge to it, but I felt that it should, it is a rugged sort of fiber. I love the nice natural color too.
In knitting related news, last weekend I went to a bookstore to look for a specific magazine, predictably I didn't find it, but look what I did find:
Apparently Barnes and Noble carries a large array of knitting magazines! To many of you this is probably old news, but I had no idea! I always assumed that they might have Vogue Knitting and Interweave, but not such a wide selection (and some I had never seen before).
Also, this post is brought to you thanks to iPhoto's Photostream which has allowed me to be even more lazy by automatically downloading the photos on my phone to my home computer right after I take them. I love technology.
Now, back to the books for me, I hope you all have a wonderful week!
