Knitting with Some of my Handspun Yarn

A long time ago, I spun some beautiful blue merino wool on my spinning wheel.

This week, I actually used some of it to make a nice hair scrunchie! :)

Love that color!
And you're so brave, knitting up your homespun...mine just sits on the shelf, looking pretty. I don't know why, like I'm afraid of using it. Silly me.
May I ask, where you found the blue fiber to spin?

Thanks, mrsmouse!

I have so much fiber in my house from buying it on eBay, that I'm not afraid to give it a try.

I wish I could remember where I got that beautiful blue fiber. I bought it on eBay a very long time ago, WAY before I started blogging. So, I have no record of how I got it. :(

I hope you get the courage to tackle your handspun!
