The Daily Purl

handspun & handknit


Still spinning and knitting stockinette stitch…
I need to get more of this fiber – I only had enough for a large long swatch, but I love the way it looks in stockinette stitch. Uneven stitches. Unexpected beauty.

And winding yarn…
I was the lucky recipient of Nova’s birthday contest – my first STR yarn!
Thank you so much Nova!

  1. The handspun is so pretty! I never know what to do with the tiny skeins. I’ve had enough of the “one skein” patterns, too- they don’t seem worthy of handspun.

  2. Looks just beautiful. Can I touch it? 😉

  3. Gorgeous handspun. I got my first STR from Cara, but I haven’t knit with it yet. I guess I’m saving it =)

  4. beautiful job spinning and photographing the cashmere and silk – it looks so yummy.

  5. So beautiful, Brooke. Your photo depicts the yarn’s softness perfectly.

  11. Oh wow, must get some of that fibre! It looks wonderful. Must be a joy to spin and knit with.

  12. The yarn you spun looks fabulous – and I bet it is incredibly soft, too. I can’t seem to spin anything that finely.
