Customer FOs: Fall 2013, Part II

Hi there! It's Kara again with the second installment of the Fall project highlights. This time we'll focus on the spinning related projects finished in the last few months.

If you've just joined us, FOs are Finished Objects: any item knitted, crocheted, woven, felted, spun or otherwise transformed from Dyeabolical yarns or spinning fibers into another form (e.g. yarn knitted in to mittens, warp crocheted in to dishcloths, fiber in to a felted object, dyed top spun in to yarn).

Wendy of Knit 1, Heart Too spun a sweater's worth of Portuguese Merino in Flowershop Inferno and then knit it into a lovely sweater. (stash page, project page) By the way, there is some Portuguese Merino in stock in the shop right now and available for special order, but move fast. It is no longer available from Rachel's distributor and when it is gone, it is gone.

Look how gorgeous this yarn is! 

And then how great it looks in sweater form! 

From Marja, we have a great skein in Gamma Ray.

From Kara, we have a couple projects. First up, she spun a 3-ply superwash merino in Flowershop Inferno into a 3-ply fingering weight. (blog post)

Then, from handspun featured here previously, she knit a great Hitchhiker scarf. (project page, blog post)

From Carrie, we have Themyscira in two fibers spun together - BFL/Firestar and Portuguese Merino. 

Mandy spun some great Themyscira in Finn wool & also BFL wool, then knit them into a fabulous Boneyard Shawl. (project page)

And last, but not least, from Ann we have a fantastic Wingspan scarf in Mr. Fuschia. 

Phew. That's spinning all caught up. Just remember that if you'd like to see your finished project featured here, the best way to do that is email me (Kara) at starmonkeybrass(at)gmail(dot)com or message me on Ravelry
