Spinning Show & Tell: Decisions, decisions

Spinning Show & Tell September 3rd
It's been another quiet weekend for crafting, but I've started spinning the rest of my fibre from Hannah's Mum's alpacas and finished plying the singles that have been on my DIY Lazy Kate for some time. Today I'll get it washed and dried and added to my growing stash!

Talking of which, it's definitely time to cast on some of this lovely handspun (making it AND knitting it is part of my Year of Projects goal list) and I've narrowed the choices down to a few patterns - the first two have been in my queue almost since I started knitting but Carina Spencer's patterns are so lovely, I am leaning towards the third  - what do you think?

I'm planning to cast on one of these later, once the school uniforms are labelled (uncharacteristically slapdash and last minute, but that's how I roll these last few weeks.) As usual, you're welcome to link to your fibre/spinning posts too. Please use the linky below and link back to this post. 

Oh and the yarn giveaway winner has yet to claim her prize, so if you are reading this Sarah_L_N, please drop me a message with your address ! 


  1. I'm a big fan of Capuchine and I think it would be fabulous in handspun. I think I'm going to cast on with my first decent handspan for a Trillian this week. It is both exciting and a little nerve wracking to see it I can make a real object from my yarn!

  2. These look like all great hat patterns.

  3. Oh and the handspun looks smooshy and lovely. Great job.

  4. I like the third one too, the top of it is a lovely shape :)
