Wingspan

I think all my other knitting projects are going to take a backseat to this one. Wingspan by Maylin Tan is one of the most addictive, easy patterns I’ve found recently.

I’m using all handspun yarns. Four I’ve spun and one that was gifted to me by a dear friend.

Of course I’m still quilting and sewing, but not on projects I have permission to show.

Milk Protein Fiber yarn!

This is the first time I’ve spun up Milk Protein Fiber. When I purchased it, I was almost afraid to open the package and see what I was getting.

When I finally opened the package, I found the fiber to be REALLY slippery! And I had a tendency to overtwist the singles.

Thinking I had totally messed it up, I went ahead and plied it on itself. The result is a very soft yarn! Surprised me as I had enough twist at spots in the singles they felt like wire when I was plying them.

As soft as this is, I think it will make a great pair of cuffs or the base of a pair of fingerless mitts. I’ll know which after I process it and tally the final yardage.
