spinning for others

My goal this past weekend was to finish spinning the yarn for my friend Amanda for her birthday. It isn’t a surprise, but I do hope she likes it regardless. Amanda does reenactments with the SCA, and is a fibre enthusiast as well, and I told her I’d spin her some yarn for a shawl. It’s generally nasty, humid, and hot where she is, but last winter it got genuinely cold.

This wool is just wool, though I’m not sure from what kind of sheep. I got it last summer as part of a thank you for a spinning demonstration at Star Gazing Farm in Montgomery County, Maryland.

It’s winging it’s way to her now! Happy Birthday, Amanda!

    I’m sure she will really enjoy the yarn and the pretty shawl it will make.

    I know she will enjoy it. If it came from Stargazing, then it is more likely cheviot. She has all the colors! Anyway, it looks great!
