I have never knitted with handspun yarn before, so when a dear friend, Molly, mentioned that she would like a pair of socks knitted in her handspun, I volunteered.
Molly is a great spinner & I am always so envious of her gorgeous handspun whenever she shows them around. I was so happy to be able to knit with her handspun.
As the yarn is quite variegated, I decided on a simple lace panel at the front of the socks. This also gives me the opportunity to use my latest acquisition, Vogue Lace Stitchionary . I fell in love with the Caterpillar lace panel & it was just right ......
I really enjoyed knitting with Molly's handspun as she did a fantastic job.The yarn was so evenly spinned & so easy to knit with. The colors are also gorgeous & it's was so great watching the colors emerged as I knitted.
The knitting went really fast as I was using 3mm dpns (first time in my sock knitting career as I have never such a "thick" dpn for socks).
I handed the socks to Molly last week & she is happy with them & they fitted her well.
