Handspun Seraphin Shawl

Well, I didn't mean to disappear for so long but life has happened a bit over the last couple of months and I just didn't feel much like blogging. I've been hanging out far too much on Ravelry too. At least I have something to show for the extended absence.

This is the Seraphim Shawl knit in my own handspun. The fibre is South African Fine in the colourway 'Think Spring' and was the February '08 instalment of the Spunky Club I get the double dose which is 8oz. I spun it as a 2 ply yarn and it's approximately 4ply/fingering weight. I had just under 840 metres of yarn after spinning and about 30 grams of the yarn left after finishing the knitting. I'm really pleased with it and I love the way it turned out. :-)
