Look what we made!
The beautiful handspun you sent has seen some action.
This is the first time I’ve ever used handspun yarn, and I. LOVE. IT! The subtle play of colour, the variation of texture, the little flecks of yellow and green and very occasionally, a startle of white. I had no idea it could be so much fun. and the whole time I was knitting it, I kept thinking, “Wow, Becky made this yarn. How cool is that?”
The Calorimetry pattern was a nice quick knit, took about four or five hours worth of pick-it-up-and-knit-a-row (I need this kind of no-brainer knitting, as Pomatomus requires some focus). I blocked it,
and I added a nice basic button.
Then (for my sins) I put it on and had the Man Himself take a photo of me in it.
And guess what? I still have ten grams left, enough for a stripe in the end of a scarf. Yay!
Thank you again for one of the nicest gifts I’ve ever received.
