Wool, Wool, Everywhere

Handspun and off the long sitting bobbins,
Spun from a fleece brought back from the Winter Wool Workshop last year.
plied and on the homemade cheapo niddy noddy,

It is my best effort yet, but I will keep working to get a little more consistency in my yarn.

just completed and hanging out on the fence,

drying after a nice soak and ready for knitting,

and my first homegrown fleeces on the skirting table.

More on that undertaking later.

Somewhere in all that I darned a few socks and swatched for a secret project.
I have just been in fiber heaven all day!

I love the colour of your shawl. What do you plan for the homespun, are you going to dye it first?

Your shawl is stunning! I love seeing the various stages of fleece and yarn and shawl. I have no idea what a niddy noddy is, but it sure is a fun word to ponder (and repeat).
