Belated Birthday Yarn Fairy Gets a Belated Thanks

Kristin came to my birthday party in early July with three or four tiny samples of yarn she was spinning for me. They were some pretty two-ply loops that just gave me a tasty taste of what was to come. What came was beyond my wildest expectations! FOUR big hanks of homespun yarn. What a treat!

I taught Kristin to knit maybe 5 years ago. She has since become an excellent knitter, and a fabulous spinner. I am so pleased to be the recipient of this generous gift!

Kristin doesn’t yet have a blog, but she CAN be found on Ravelry. Often. Here she details her materials and methods. WOWZA. THANK YOU LOVE!!

Also, check out this sweater that she spun and knit for the Boogedy!

These yarns were photographed on a beautiful handmade quilt that my cousin Robin picked up at an estate sale years ago. Unfortunately, I don’t know any details about it! The skeins were also popular with grabby little fingers.
