Handspun Yarn Story

Hi Knitters,
The winner of the copy of Wearwithall is Carmen (cnuland - rav id). Congratulations! Thank you to everyone who entered. I have a really fun giveaway coming up that includes some gorgeous yarn. Look for that in the near future.

Today I want to share a handspun yarn story through photos. The process of spinning yarn has become a real passion of mine. I love every step along the way. The roving in the photo above is from Cloudlover (click here for the site) in the Green River colorway.

In the end I got 298 yards of about a dk weight yarn. I am thinking about making a version of this shawl with it even though I am short on the yardage. I will just make it a little smaller to compensate.

best, susie
