the shawl photos


Finished some yarn, again

I actually took a little time over the holiday weekend to finish a shawl and some yarn. I'll post photos of the shawl when I can get modeled photos. Here's the yarn. The scraps are leftovers from the shawl, and I have a plan for them. I hate to throw handspun away! The other is Texel from SCF. It's two colorways separated out into color groups. 12 ounces of fiber spun into about 840 yards of 2-ply sport weight. I have just eight ounces to go of the undyed texel singles before I ply and have a huge pile of yarn for a sweater!
