A Spinning FO

Last night was very productive. I finished plying the Yamdrok BFL & I also finished the ribbing on my Whisper Cardigan.

Candice identified my method for diving the fiber as Fractal Spinning. I was doing it unintentionally! I really like how the yarn turned out. =)

I also managed to spin it quite thin. All in all I'm very proud of this yarn! I also have to say that my camera didn't capture the shade of blue properly, it's much more saturated/bold than the way it looks in the pictures.

Like I said I also finished the ribbing on my Whisper.

(Please ignore my foot) I tried it on and I'm really liking the way it looks! However, I had to modify the sleeves because I have thick upper arms and I did way less decreases than called for. This caused me to knit more stitched across the back of the sweater making it wider than it's supposed to be. What all of that means is that the collar flips back on the top of the sweater. It's really not a big deal, I'll probably tack it down with some yarn so I don't have to worry about it, though. I didn't do this on my Ribbed Lace Bolero, and it annoys me to fiddle with the collar while I'm wearing it. (Also this is the one knitted item that I made that I wear often! It's great over tanks at work)
