You only have to look how well the spinning and fibre stalls are doing at a yarn festival to realise how popular spinning is. I'm always drawn to the beautiful spinning wheels which are either on display or being used in demonstrations, yet it's something I've never tried myself, nor have I ever knitted up any handspun yarn. I've been watching the Knatters Knits podcast, Natalie who presents this podcast is a wonderful spinner and she asked if I'd like to try some of her handspun yarn, how could I refuse?
This is 70% Bluefaced Leicester/30% sparkle and it's beautifully soft. I really do need to find the perfect project to show this off so any suggestions would be appreciated. I thought a cowl might be nice or maybe a pair of mittens. Perhaps you could help me decide.
Here's a closer look at the colours, the lilac and lemon goes so well together.
Thank you so much, Natalie, I'm thrilled to bits with this scrumptious yarn and it will be put to very good use, I can't wait to try it out.
