I get so good at blogging and then fall off the wagon for a while. To be fair, we’ve had a bad few months with lots of grief and loss, so the blog has been less important lately. Anyway, I do have another spun-to-finished project to show off. Well, two, really, from the same batch of yarn/fiber.
|The fiber is Koigu braided roving, and is 100% Targhee fiber. This was acquired at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival in 2010, and I LOVE the fiber.
|It’s really light and sproingy, so I managed to spin 500 yards from the 100 grams.
|Finally, the two finished objects made from the same skein of yarn. One pair of Broad Street Mittens, and one Moebius Cowl. Both were easy knits, and simple, because I wanted the colors to show themselves off more than the pattern. They’re both patterns I’ve knit before, so it was easy, and I made a few small modifications along the way (as you do when you’ve knit a pattern multiple times and know just how to fit it to your peculiarities). Very pleased with how they both came out. I knit the mittens first and then the cowl second, using up every inch of the yarn which means it’s a little short, but does the job well enough!
