That is so lovely. It just makes me want to go in my room and sit down and practice, practice, practice until I get as good as you are!
I agree with Dorothy...your pics make me want to dust off the wheel and see if I can spin anything other then boucle. lol Those colors are so wonderful together...you have such talent as a spinner. *hugs* :)
It looks wonderful -- socks?
Well Dorothy at least this kind of "practice" is relaxing and enjoyable. Not at all like algebra!Oh do, Ruinwen. A dusty wheel is a sad thing indeed.I'm not sure Dave. I'm working on a pair of handspun socks right now. I have about the same yardage of the same fibre in a different colour. The yardage seems a bit skimpy. I might end up with anklets though I prefer a taller, crew sock length. It's a good thing I am knitting them from the toe up so that I can just make them shorter if need be.
Very lovely colors. Some of the RH weavers are using sock yarn for scarves, just in case you might need some inspiration LOL...
Now that's a thought Deepend. I've woven scarves on my rigid heddle from sock yarn before, but never from my handspun. I do have a partially handspun scarf (weft only) but that was done on my floor loom.
Oh. Wait. Now that I think about it, "Night Magic" was a handwoven scarf done on the rigid heddle loom.http://wovenflame.blogspot.com/2008/02/night-magic.html
