FOs: Off My Needles/Wheel
Off My Needles/Hooks:
I finished my first Hitchhiker Shawl (design by Martina Behm) on Christmas evening. It wasn't a gift so that's ok. This is a really easy pattern to memorize making it great travel or Craft Night Group knitting. And it works well with handspun yarn.
I ran out of my handspun at 34 points, so it's more of a Shawlette (or odd-shaped scarf) than a true Shawl. I'll probably use it as a scarf. I'd like to try this pattern again with sufficient handspun yardage to make 42 points.
Off My Spindles/Wheel:
This lovely skein is approximately 690 yds of fingering weight worsted spun and Navajo/chain ply yarn. It was spun on both spindles and my wheel from my first Loop Bullseye batt in the Seafoam gradient colorway.
