Want to see our handspun scrappies?

We just received these beautiful scrappy capris from Melissa at DaKine knits. She was so sweet to do this for us even though handspun yarn is tougher to knit with (thick and thin) and handspun scraps meant lots of different yarn characteristics to deal with. She did a lovely job! And they fit my DD perfectly:


(we got them right before nap time)





Thanks Melissa
