love and hate goth spun. Well, there they are – my latest leap into sheepdom. Those are the Knucks that everybody else is making. I used the maroon-colored yarn that I spindle-spun a few months ago; all the other yarn is handspun, including the gray flowery thing on one hand – some of my first handspun, from a beginning spinning class. I think it’s Lincoln.
A couple of observations: I think if I make them again – and I might – I’ll use the child’s size, at least for me. I tried to felt these, but the yarn was already mostly felted, so that wasn’t working (as you can see). Yes, those are my fat, stubby little hands there. I also wish there was a satisfactory way to keep the fabric a bit more taut when doing the embroidery. I’m not real pleased with the job I did, but it was freehand so I guess I shouldn’t be too picky. I’m working up the nerve to post this on the Knucks gallery.
