Fire keeps me warm

So I’m finished spinning the fire fiber.
Fire Fiber
Well not completely. I still have to ply it all.

And yes, I took A LOT of pictures (believe it or not there are even more on flickr).

But it’s not every day I get to see this much handspun – 1lb 3oz - in one place!

Plus I’m pretty proud. This was my first big spinning project. When it’s done I should have quite a bit of yarn - I have no idea exactly how much but hopefully a lot.
Fire Fiber
It’s not the most perfect or even but plyed it’s around a worseted/aran weight.
Fire Fiber
Which leaves me lots of possibilities … Perhaps stripes in a sweater?

Fire FiberPerhaps a Clapotis? Fire Fiber

Perhaps something a little more lacy?

Not sure what I’ll use it for yet but I’m sure I want a pattern that will show off the yarn!


(Because in case you can't tell I seriously love this yarn.)

  12. Absolutely stunning! Although I'm sure it would make a lovely non-sweater, you know I'm all about the sweaters, so I can't help thinking a simple pattern that would show off the yarn - what about the Simple Knitted Bodice? Or something lacy might look good, like you said. Ariann or Cece?
