Kirsten Kapur released a beautiful new shawl pattern last week, Saranac that she designed for handspun yarn. I love the edging, different stitches and swoopy angles. I want to spin and knit this, it suits my spinning and knitting brain exactly right now. It is lovely and perfectly transitional. Plus I have a very long car ride coming up – Michigan to Florida for a diving competition. All things that make this shawl point to WIN.
The first order of business is to stash dive. I came up with this mass of Woolgatherings fiber.
And narrowed it down to these three:
I’m going to spin them singly and combine them in various ways while drafting. I’ll be back next week with the results.
What are you sampling for this week?
