Third handspun + WIP

*warning, photo heavy lol*

My third handspun yarn was the same fibre as the first/second lot, which I dyed with food colouring again.


It turned out a lot better than I expected it to. I spun and plied it with a commercial yarn, into about a DK/8ply weight.

I matched it with some organic cotton to make the feather and fan shawl.
It's a very enjoyable, relaxing project.
After all the excitement and seeing everyone at Easter, on Sunday afternoon while everyone was still down at the beach, Lachie had a 2 hour nap at my sister's place while we watched Bruce Almighty and I knitted.



That photo is from last week sometime, I haven't taken another updated one yet.
