Handspun makes it better

Long overdo knitting update! I haven't been knitting much but I have finished a few things lately. I think almost everything I've been knitting lately has been with handspun. Will I ever be able to knit with regular yarn again!?

Most recently I knit this hat:

Wurm hat

Pattern: Wurm by katushika
Yarn: Handspun dyed by Woolgatherings
Needles: Size 4 and 6 US
Mods: Knit 2 purl rows and 7 knit rows instead of 5 and 4 and only knit 6 repeats.

I also finished this shawl:

Annis shawl

Pattern: Annis by Suzanna IC
Yarn: My hand-dyed handspun yarn
Needles: Size 9 and 10 US
Mods: none

Earlier this year I knit these socks:

Fat Cat Handspun socks

Fat Cat Handspun socks

Pattern: Plain socks
Yarn: Fat Cat hand spun
Needles: Size 2 US

The one non hand spun item I finished are these Trekking socks:

Trekking socks

Pattern: plain socks
Yarn: Trekking
Needles: Size 2 US

I'm thinking about designing a shawl for this contest. I guess I have to get spinning in order to be ready in time!

You've been busy! I especially love those socks. Still trying to spin some yarn worthy of socks.

Love the handspun socks! I'm addicted to FatCatKnits :)

Also, Suzanna IC is one of my best friends here in Germany! It's been exciting to witness her rocket to the top of the pattern popularity chart hehe

And just wanted to say thanks for all your comments on my blog, I really appreciate them!
