Knitting: Cup / Mug
This was my first knitted project using some of my (among my) first handspun, spun on my Kundert spindle or my Ashford Traveller. I was leery of planning a larger project with my handspun until I tried a small one. I wanted to see how my handspun would feel and react when it was pulled and twisted by the action of knitting.
