From Fiber to Finished Object

Well, I had wonderful plans to show pictures of all the steps of this fiber. Somehow I can't find the ones from when I spun it, or the finished yarn. I know the minute after I finish this post they will just show up. I dyed the fiber, I spun, and knit it. It was really neat to say that I did all that for this project.

This was my first project that I knit out of my handspun. It is a neck warmer that I used the Embossed Stitch pattern from More Sensational Knitted Socks. I had about 150 yards of a three ply. I think the model is pretty cute too.

With the cloudy weather, this is the best picture I could get of it right now but maybe if I get motivated one sunny day I will get a better picture.

It turned out great!!! I've thought about using some of those stitch patterns for neck warmers... they are already made for knitting in the round, so why not??!

I don't know how you ever say no to that face.

Awesome!!! And that is a very cute model. Look at all those teeth!

Excellent job on the whole handspun--from dyeing to the finished project! I haven't dyed roving before--usually I dye my yarn after I spin it. I may have to give it a shot...What dyes did you use?

Are you still getting snow?
