Each week, we all work on various fibre-related things that we are excited to share with one another. Some share on Instagram (use #fiberfriday – note the American spelling to keep things simple on Instagram!) but some of us still blog about our fibre-y pursuits. If you’d like to join in, blog and post a photo of your fibre pursuits, link up and share with the rest of the community what you’ve been working on! It’s a great way to stay motivated, inspired and surrounded by a community of fellow handspinners, knitters and crafters in general! Please keep it fibre-related, friends.
Through-out this week, I have been swatching and spinning. I have made 4 knitted swatches, all for sweaters. One was a swatch after-the-fact. I have already started a shawl with the yarn but am re-thinking my plans. The swatch is dry and I’ve cast on a top-down raglan. As I get a little further, I’ll make a decision about the shawl and whether to rip it out and keep the cardigan or vice versa.
In and among this turmoil of decision making, I’ve been steadily working away on my Panda fibre from last week. I’m so close to finishing this colourway. The wrister is wearing well, as well. So far, there’s little stretching, which I was worried about with the Alpaca content, and it’s fuzzing up a bit so more twist in the sweater yarn will be necessary.
