Splendid Mail Day. Splendor Handspun Yarn.

Splendid handspun

This was in the mail today!  Six beautiful skeins of handspun from Laura and George at Splendor Yarns.  Isn't it lovely?


If you've been following along, you'll know that this was once some hand-dyed roving, here, and that Laura was kind enough to spin it for me.  Although  I have a gracious plenty of holiday knitting that needs to be completed, this yarn is so special and so pretty that it's calling me.  It's irresistible!  I think I'm off to look for patterns that would be nice for handspun.  If you have any suggestions, please chime in in the comments!



Fiber to Yarn


I have a lovely little stash of unspun roving, both Merino and BFL, in my studio.  As much as I always thinks I'm going to find some time to spin, it never seems to happen.  My sweet friends at Hyena Cart, one of my favorite places to buy hand-spun and dyed yarn and other handmade goods, suggested a number of spinners to me, so I'm sending some of my fiber off to be turned, as if by magic, into yarn.


This first batch is going off to the lovely Laura at Splendor.  Her yarn is so beautiful and I hear such nice things about her, that I can hardly wait to see it!



My fiber is off to Washington state, one of my favorite parts of the country.  I can't wait to see what it is going to look like when it comes back to me!
