My Handspun

Many thanks to sgeddes, whose reporting example is so easy to follow. I just wish my last name was as easy to turn into a great brand name. ;o)

This was my first attempt at Navajo plying, and there are a few flaws. Overall, though, it's decently balanced and doesn't have too many open loops where the three strands of the chain weren't the same length. ;o)

I was too excited to wait to take pictures during the day, so you've got to suffer through with ambient living room light for this post. Never fear, though . . . a light box is in the works.

Wow. It's beautiful. I love the colors. I haven't been bitten by the handspinning bug yet, but you're certainly tempting me!

Wow...so beautiful! I haven't learned to do this yet..maybe someday. Right now I'm content to knit and buy my yarn from talented people like you.

Impressive! I just found your blog. It looks like I found a fellow knitter and a fellow church member :) I have always wanted to spin yarn! Maybe when I retire.
