Inspiration: Handspun Knitty Projects from First Fall 2017

I want to knit a lot more with my handspun this year so I went in search of inspiration.

I took a peek at First Fall Knitty, 2017 to see if any spinning knitters had made projects from handspun, and I found some beautiful projects.

 

Mostly Bosco

 

 Miss Bunt’s Mostly Bosco, an all handspun version of Bosco spun from Southercross Fibre’s Veternari. The colors and all over striping make a vibrarnt sweater. I’d like to wear this in the middle of a grey winter!

 

 

 

Slow Fade

 

Missbrownspeck’s Slow Fade, from Kate’s Slow Fade. It’s still a WIP, but it’s so pretty in Spunky Eclectic’s soft-striping Aquarium.

 

 

 

 

 

Wolking  Martina Behm’s texture cowl was popular with spinners.

 

Quick Silver

 

 1hundredprojects ‘s Quicksilver Cowl, is a Wolking made with a yak/silk single, plied with silk yarn. Can you imagine how soft and silky this cowl is?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Really Cloudy

 

 

Gila’s Wolking she’s dubbed Really Cloudy. The color of this is really cloudy, it looks like storm cloud. I can imagine that the raised texture bits are rumbles of thunder.

 

 

 

 

 

Wölkchen

 

Annagret’s Wölkchen, was knit from yarn dyed and spun by CODfishh. Annagret was so inspired by the yarn that she added beads to make the cowl more sumptuous.

 

 

 

 

 

Wolking  has fascinated me since it was published, I’m going to be spinning for it and writing about it on my  personal blog. I’ll let you know when there are updates so you can check in if you are interested.
