I am knitting at my desk today during short breaks from work. It keeps me focused and in the chair. I am knitting my recent handspun yarn. It is lumpy bumpy because I was trying new fibers and new techniques. I have been away from my wheel for a while, so I had to get back into the 'spin' of things. he he. The ball of handspun is 2 ply with a single of merino and a single of mohair (my recent dye project). The merino was spun woolen and the mohair was spun from the fold. The handspun on the needles and laying across the keyboard is navajo ply, which is a new technique for me. There were a lot of firsts in this adventure - my first merino, my first mohair, and my first navajo ply. There is nothing perfect about it, except that I am perfectly content with it. I have found to my great joy that the imperfections melt away when knit and can even enhance a project. This will soon be a pair of open-end mitts.
