This weekend there was a twitter meet up in here in NYC. I got to meet a few of the knitters I’ve been tweeting with for a bit now. Chris, @VTknitboy,came down from Vermont, Susie, @knittingknoobie, Patricia @citysitchette and a few others without twitter accounts by the time I had to leave, I had spent a great few hours with new people. We started at Brooklyn General but they had a class going on and a couple regular groups on their way. With a quick walk to La Casita we relocated.
We set up shop and Chris pulled out his hand spun. and laid it out on the table and said pick, I was stunned. He owns four rabbits, and has to regularly comb them, and spins the fiber which he also sells on etsy on occasion. So with my brain stuttering at the bunny, soft, amazing, yarn, moment I decided if I had a plan it would be a bit easier to figure things out. I knew that for my 31posts, I had taken a shot of the living room stash where all the handspun lives.
I settled on these two mini skeins. Both a little more than 90 yards. I know I want to make something using them both, and add a gift of an angora blend and I am thinking a cowl of some kind. Possible stripes?
Both of cakes in the middle may not be used in this project. With just one skein should be close to 300 yards. So that should be doable. I’m leaning towards the top cake in this project, and using the bottom cake as an edging to some other lovely bit of knitting. I suppose only time will tell.
