I recently realized that I forgot to post my latest handspun. It slipped my mind because it’s just more of the same mohair-Finn that I began to spin back in September. The second 4 ounces came out about like the first 4 ounces:Skein #1: 294 yards, 110 g
Skein #2: 323 yards, 117 g
Between the two of these, I definitely have enough for a pair of socks. Some of this is true fingering weight, but some if more like sportweight. Any ideas about patterns for my first handspun socks?
I need to get something new on the wheel. Those Sweet Fern Mitts in Clara Parkes’ new book are on my mind, and I might try spinning something specifically for those. Maybe the blueberry roving I got at MDSW09 (#5 on this photo collage)…? I can try to spin it woolen and see what happens.
