Handspun Yarn for Less is More Sweater

I had discussed this awesome sweater in Knitty and had pulled out fiber for spinning the yarn.

I last posted that I finished both the singles for the colored part as well as the solid part.

I was able to ply both singles together and was able to get all of the yarn on two bobbins on my Hansencrafts mSpinner.  I have never filled the bobbins to capacity before.

Here are the photos from the spinner.
I ended up with two gigantic skeins of yarn and I love the color variation of them.  I hope the colors will not be too concentrated in the knitting of the sweater.
This is all I had left of 16 ounces of spinning.
Yarn needs to be washed and then the sweater will be ready to knit.


  1. Maggie -- your skeins are beautiful. Can't wait to see your work in progress.

  2. Oh, I can't wait to see the sweater!
