The yarn I spun while at the cabin last weekend is all done. I ended up with about 450 yards from the 4-ounce braid; that means the yarn is around a fingering weight. It should be fairly stripe-y — though the yellow sections will be wider than the blue and green sections. With the stripes in mind, I think I’ll look for a small shawl or cowl to knit with this, something not too lacy.
I also, in the spirit of not simply feeding the stash, started a project with some previous handspun. Lost the label on the fiber, but it’s a wool, perhaps a super wash wool. Anyway – it’s also a fingering weight (my default spinning thickness) and so I paired it up with the Willow Cowl. My yarn is not as smooth as the sock yarn that the pattern calls for, so mine is knitting up with a little more ‘chunk’; but it is soft and drapes properly, so I think it will be fine.
Here’s a closeup of the texture.
In the stockinette sections, the yarn looks pretty even; but the thick-and-thin really stands out in the lace sections!
