Seldom do I get to see a finished product from one of my fibers or handspun yarns, so when I do, it really is a big reward. As those of you who sell on line know, it often times feels like you've put your little beloved creations into the postal system (think: bottle in the ocean), never to be heard of again.
Not so with my long time friend, Penni, who started spinning again this past year. She's been an ardent supporter of TaosSunflowerToo fibers and faithfully sends me photos of her finished yarns and the projects she knits with them. She's an amazing spinner...often times getting 600 yds and more from a mere 4.0 oz. of hand painted roving. Then she knits fabulous lace shawls with these yarns and often times gives them away. (Lucky you if you're on her list!)
Yesterday I received this shawl photo. It's from one of my Free Fall rovings she purchased last year. Who says you can't do much with a single 4.0 oz. roving??? Certainly not Penni!!
Thanks, Penni, for letting me share this with everyone. It's far too beautiful not to. You do me honor with your work. XOXO
