FO Friday: Proof Of Life

Look at that! I’m a real live knitter. I don’t often, almost ever, post a photo of myself but I had to this time. I had to show you how fantastic my Unleaving turned out. I enjoyed everything about this project, except maybe the blocking. I’ve got to get some real blocking pins and some blocking wires. They are on the to buy list. Anyway, the yarn was spun by Beth and she did a beautiful job with it. Knitting with handspan is different than knitting with commercial yarn. The spinner puts themselves into the yarn. It has real life. It has ebb and flow. Being gifted this yarn is special. I can’t thank Beth enough. I really enjoyed knitting with it. I had to find a perfect pattern for the yarn. I wanted something that would show off the color in a unique way. I chose Unleaving by Lee Juvan. I wanted to be sure I could use every bit of the yarn and I did. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. I highly recommend it.
