I’ve decided to approach this topic by getting up close and personal with my projects: one-to-two inches. My hypothesis is that there are delightful things to learn about your stitch technique, your fibers, and your yarn structure when you get really, really, really close.
Getting to know my hand-spun.
I’m a fairly new spinner so I freely admit I have worlds of technique to learn. But most of the time I couldn’t care less. I’m delighted with my hand-spun babies. The colorful swirls, the smooth coils, the woolly scent–I love it all, even if it’s not perfect. I’ve often blogged about projects I’ve knit from hand-spun, but this is the first time I’ve examined my fiber through the magnifying reality of the camera lens.
