PROGRESS WITH HANDSPUN
Latest FO: this is a lace scarf knitted from handspun merino/bombyx roving from Nancy Finn of Chasing Rainbows Colorworks, modeled by one of my favorite pieces of ethnic art. Her work (Nancy Finn's, not the African bust) was featured in Handpaint Country. Unfortunately, she doesn't have a website, but I have to say she's one of the best colorists working with spinning fiber around.
Other than Wendy's gift sachet, this is the only item I've ever made from my own handspun. The skeins just pile up all over this apartment, fondled and admired. I think this has to change, don't you?
