Hi comm! *echo echo* In an effort to encourage posting here, I thought I'd share some photos of a shawl/ette I made recently. I just learned how to hand-spin with a drop spindle. I did not spin all the yarn for this shawl. Rather, I mixed yarn from a local farm that I'd been hoarding like a dragon for that special project with some of my first handspun. It's a really simple garter stitch pattern, but I think that highlights the qualities of the yarn rather than distracting from them.
Without further ado...
Close-up of my shawlette that shows stripes of natural colored yarn in a triangular pattern. The bumpier yarns are the homespun, the smoother yarns are the ones that were machine-spun.( 1 Photo of the entire shawl under the cut )
The local yarn is alpaca and the homespun is wool, so it is super warm. I wore it yesterday at my very cold partner's family's home, and was quite grateful for it. <3 spinning.
