Knitting with handspun yarn has to be one of the most lovely knitting experiences. I really treasure my small stash of handspun and so have been gazing with awe at all the handspun yarn created last month by knitters taking part in the Tour de Fleece. I need to join in next year! With all that spinning in mind, I had a look at some beautiful projects created with handspun yarn.
A handspun sweater is such a wonderful thing! This amazing Strokkur was made by Cheryl Burke (the designer of Dutchess from The Rhinebeck Sweater), with fibre from sheep named Elle, Shirlee and Leroy.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
