The last BSJ I made was with machine spun yarn, and needed no blocking. I think this one can use a bit, though. It's not a rumply as I thought is was going to be, but the button band does not naturally lie flat, so I think a bit of steam is in order.
The pewter buttons are hand made by a New Hampshire craftsman, and have the tree of life on them.
So, my first hand-spun garment is complete and ready for gifting. I'll almost be sad to see it go.
I do still have a few other projects OTN, but they are all gifts I can not share. So, I fear I may not have much to post about in the coming weeks.
I will however still be spinning, so may be that will produce some photo-worthy product!
I have still been working on my mohair/merino lace weight, but I'm getting a bit bored, and have occasionally switched to another fiber for a little variety. This weekend I decided to indulge myself with a little hand painted BFL from Witchypoo. There are also a some hand painted silk caps That I have already begun to fluff up. I can't wait to play with some of these!
