Didn’t have a whole lot of time for fiber fun this weekend, but I don’t think I’d shared these recent spins with you yet-

Above, clockwise from top we’ve got Frank/Felix soft spun singles, a pearly grey Romney two-ply from Sand Hill Farm, and a fun blend of Frank/Felix, white alpaca and blue and wine colored mohair.

I am really in love with the F & F singles. They are a beautiful creamy opaque white, and so soft and lofty.

Work up really quick, too, from hand combed top!

And just in time to be put away for the summer, here are the finally completed sweaters!

3/4 sleeve colorwork raglan:

roll-edge natural shades raglan:

and Huey and Frank Oregon vest!

Have a great week-

    I am in LOVE with your colorwork raglan! Everything about it — the waist shaping, colors, sleeve length — looks perfect!

      Thanks MIchelle. I’m really pleased with how it turned out. It sat in the UFO pile for a long time,, so glad I finally got down to it and finished it up!

    Your handknits all look very cosy, warm and practical. I especially love your vests because I get far too many frequent hot flashes to wear a sweater 🙂
