I am once again putting pressure on myself to complete a project but this time I am absolutely crazy!
I began spinning this buffalo fiber about 2 months ago. I just love this stuff. It’s naturally a beautiful chocolate brown color and it spins up as soft as cashmere. It’s like spinning butter.
After some advice from spinners on Ravelry.com, I ended up respinning and re-plying so that I could add a strand of silk so the resulting yarn would have some memory:
So now 3 skeins later, I’ve begun knitting the Heartland Shawl by Evelyn Clark.
So why do I think I’m crazy?
I’m going to try and complete the project in time for Rhinebeck!
I’ve been doing a lot of trips back and forth to California so I’ve got 10hours or more a week of dedicated knitting time. Hopefully that will work in my favor!
I’ll attempt to keep the blog up to date on my progress. Until next time…
