We seem to be lacking a spot within "Spinner Central" to talk about our finished spinning projects. I hope here is as good as any other?

I am particularly pleased with the Poinsettia Shawl. I knit it using my own handspun, 2 ply, laceweight, wool/mohair.

I started spinning in May of this year. These other handspun and knitted items are some of my first efforts.

I'd love it if some of the other spinners would post links to their spinning. Nothing inspires me to spin and knit more than gazing on the lovely work of others.

Hi Marlene, your yarn and knitted items are gorgeous! Your stuff is inspiring to me. I started spinning last year. I have a lot of spun yarn, which is perfectly usable, it's just not knitted up yet. It seems I've replaced one obsession with another. I spin more than I knit these days. I just moved to Florida so wool is definitely not required any longer. I have to learn how to spin cotton. I did just make a lovely cardigan for my 6 year old daughter from beautiful hand-dyed merino roving I bought from "The Wool Peddler" on Ebay. It's blues and greens and looks great with Jenny's blue eyes and skin tone. It's the only thing I've knit with my hand-spun yarn that I'm proud of. I do not have a blog or pictures, unfortunately. Thanks for starting this topic and posting pictures of your beautiful spinning and knitting.

I was like that at first Wendy, but knitting has once again bubbled to the top of my obsessions list. Now I usually spin once a week, although it is often for several hours (nothing in moderation dontcha know?) and knit for many, many, more than that.

Yeah, I tend to swithc back and forth between mostly spinning and mostly crocheting. I'll do nothing but spin for a week, and then I'll sit down and make a dozen or so hats, stuff like that. I still wind up with far more things than I can possibly use, so my friends find themselves frequently buried in woolen gifts. (^_^)

Anyway, the shawl is gorgeous!
