Introducing my first ever handspun yarn, Pumpkin Bom. She is a little uneven, but she is fabulous, as far as I am concerned.
I plied it, well, because that seemed like it would be much easier than the spinning so I figured ‘why not?’. I think I was right. It did my very overspun singles a world of good. I ended up with what appears to be a balanced yarn, albeit one with varying thickness. Interestingly enough, the thicker bits are at either end, so maybe I can knit it up to make that less noticeable. Now there is only 20 meters of this stuff, almost exactly. Any suggestions as to what I ought to make with 20m worth of 2 ply lucid orange merino handspun? It is kind of a heavy aran to bulky weight once you average it out some (that is at least 12 ply to you Nana). I think I would prefer to knit this into something seasonless, a tiny purse perhaps?
