Here's my tribute to the start of summer...a delicious pair of wintry mitts in my first painted handspun that is plied on itself (versus plying the painted fiber with a natural colored fiber). I had thought I was spoiled for knitting, but knitting with my own handspun like this--and on a favorite quick-fix pattern--helped me fall in love with knitting again.
I'm including a view of my latest yarn...I love the colors so much I can hardly contain myself. I used to have trouble picking a favorite color...I have always thought in colorways, even before I knew what they were...but I've come to realize I unconsciously (or consciously) fixate on a sort of Caribbean blue-green mix. And thanks to a wonderful woman named Gale, I have these colors in a lovely shot of yarn! Did this on knit in public day...even made it into the paper while spinning. I couldn't go to bed until this yarn had been spun, plied, bathed, and hung to dry. I love the colors that much. Okay, I'll include a shot of the wool! Bon apetit!
