This week I completed a 4oz skein of Colonial Wool dyed by my friend Carla from CJKoho Designs in the colorway Alice. I was thinking about keeping the yarn as a single but decided that I wanted a bulky yarn. I'm pleased with the yarn. This was my first time spinning the Colonial Wool. It was a nice spin but I must say, I'm so used to my fine wool and this isn't. It most likely will become a hat.
I've made a bit of progress on the Casu Cowl. I'm at 20 inches now. It's slow going and not as fun to knit as I had hoped. I really prefer knitting in the round. It takes forever to knit a few inches this way.
Finally, I cast on The Running Headband written by our friend, Cindy, at the Gauge Wars blog. Cables are a weakness of mine so I thought this headband, using my handspun, would be a nice way for me to work on the skill. I'm on row 13 of 21.
