Yes, I do occasionally knit the yarn I spin!
About a month ago, I read about a mystery knit-along from Stephen West of West Knits. I thought it sounded like fun, but I wanted to spin the yarn for it. I spun the brown yarn right away and loved the way it turned out. Then I started on the colored yarn. I spun three different things, and finished the last yarn the night before the first clue came out. I hated it too, but decided to try it. Here are the two yarns I decided to use.
Kinda ugly, right? I started knitting, and here’s the first clue completed.
I absolutely love it. I can’t wait to see what the next clue will bring.
If you’re not familiar with mystery knits, you’re given clues before it starts to help you pick out yarn. In this case, a step in the process is given out each Friday for four weeks. This is the first of four clues.
I love this project so much, I started Spectra, another Stephen West pattern.
And now, it’s time to grab my knitting and watch NASCAR!
