Friday Finishes: Handspun Skeins

Fresh of the bobbins and skeined ….  two skeins of handspun, the first for the New Year.  This wasn’t my best spinning but I am pleased with how it turned out and I have enough yardage for mitts, a hat or a cowl.

Yardage:  186 yards

Weight:    DK

Ply:           Two plied using center ball pull

Fiber:        Frabjous Fiber 100% Merino in the color Cactus 

Yardage:  134 yards

Weight:    DK

Ply:           Chain plied (Navajo Plied)

Fiber:        Funky Carolina 100% BFL in the color Egg Hunt 

I am now working on my beautiful fiber from my firiend Sherrill (a.k.a. the1764shepherdess ).  This is a blend of Targhee, Bamboo and Silk.  The colors in this braid reminds me of hot cocoa and chocolate truffles 😃

I decided to spilt this braid down the middle, 3 oz each.  My plan is to spin up two bobbins and either chain ply or two ply.  My hopes is enough yardage for a shaw.

What have you finished?

Until next time, be creative!
