Crochet with Handspun

Crochet with handspun yarn

This is a picture of a swatch I crocheted using my handspun yarn.  I spun a few mini-batts that I received in my PhatFiber box, the one on top is Spice Trader and I know that the bottom bit in red was spun with some white bamboo silk to create the third ply (I spun the spice trader with some silk too but you can barely see the white).  At this time all of the yarns that I am spinning are 3 ply for the added support and structure, also I am not used to a flat 2 ply yarn and don’t have the confidence to try and create one yet.  I love how this is turning out, eventually (one day) I hope to turn this project into a purse.  Right now it is a great resting place for my tahkli spun 3plys.
