The ZigZag Shawl for my nan is finished! Thats a picture of it blocking. I nearly cried when I finished it last night, and if you've ever knit with your own handspun yarn... I think you'll understand what I say:

It is so amazing to realise that you have just finished knitting a project with yarn you have spun yourself. It makes the project even more special. Not only have you given your own time to make this, but you gave your own time to make the yarn in the first place!

Thats a close up of the centre section. I really love the colour changes of this yarn. Squeee!

I finished the first Dragonfly sock, but no pictures yet. I'm halfway through spinning some red superwash merino/tencel from KnitCave, which is looking lovely! Just waiting to see what the yarn comes out like, and then I can assign a project to it ;)
