The Little Swatch That Could

[Remember to check out the giveaway running until Aug 14th! Win a free Ravelry pattern!]


Introducing the first swatch I have ever knitted from my homespun. I’m just a *little* excited that my yarn works for knitting and, in fact, looks fairly normal–but maybe just a little bit better than normal (because I know exactly where and how it started it’s life).

You can see the darker and lighter sections, some of the thicker and thinner, but it doesn’t actually matter in the swatch. It just looks purdy to me.

    I’m impressed! My spinning is not very good – I spin tight and haven’t figured out how to balance that during plying so a lot of my yarn ends up kind of twine-like. Personally, I like the slight thick and thin, it gives the yarn personality as compared to commercial yarn, but doesn’t compromise function. Nicely done!
