Handspun Rooty

I want to spin every braid of fiber I have and make Rootys with each one - Such a quick fun little knit and I LOVE my new hippie-ish hat :)

Handspun Rooty

After waiting for years, I have finally made it into the Hello Yarn Fiber Club and this was the 1st shipment.... Spirograph in falkland wool - gorgeous!

I spun this beautiful fiber into 217 yards (111 grams) of 3 ply worsted weight yarn. (Lots more spinning pictures here.)
