I had a great skein of handspun 100% angora yarn. It was around sport weight and I did these on size 3 needles. Only took ~150 yards or so and I invented the pattern as I went. I think my swap buddy will like them.
I'm a knitter and a lover of all fiber arts. Could there be enough time in the day to design and knit everything you want?? I keep busy by being outside, getting into trouble, and being a general good pain in the ass!
