In Which the Pirate Spins and Swatches.

My very own handspun!Last night I started spinning, but realized I was getting a thicker single than what I’d really wanted. After a few yards, I decided to just ply what I had and knit it into a little baby swatch, just so that I can say “I’ve knit with my own handspun!” Plying on a drop spindle from both ends of a center-pull ball is not so much fun. Then, I was too impatient to set the twist, which would be a mistake for future “real” spinning but didn’t matter much in this case.

Handspun yarn on Etsy seems to go for a fair amount of money. Hmmmm.
