Bison and a shawl

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, 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…

  1. It is so nice to see it after discussing it on Ravelry. Looks lovely. I can’t wait to see the finished results. 10 hours of knitting–sounds blissful!
