Epic…

…that is what this yarn is.  It took me six months to spin it, and I knew from the start who it belonged to.

Handspun - Laceweight

1496 yards of merino/bamboo laceweight singles

I’ve never spun anything so fine, so even, so (if I do say so myself) lovely.

Part of it is the fiber I started with, Panda (merino/bamboo blend) from Spunky Eclectic in the colorway Toronto.  Part of it is the wheel I used, Emma.

…and part of it is the recipient.  She deserves this yarn – she is the lace queen, after all (she’s knitting me my wedding shawl, how wonderful is that?), this yarn came off the bobbin and screamed that it belonged to her.  The color, the weight.  It says…

Cookie

I hope you enjoy knitting with it, I loved spinning it.  ;o)

p.s.  You might want to come back for another visit tomorrow…big contest planned!

  1. I don’t think even our Cookie can get much luckier than that!

    Amazing yarn, it makes me want to knit it right now.
    Beautiful, amazing work indeed.

  2. I love it! It is so beautiful and the spinning is amazing. I cannot wait until I can knit with it. Thank you so much for the wonderful and thoughtful prize, Jessalu. Totally worth the wait.

    & Yes, I started the second sock last night. :p
