Age of Brass & Steam Kerchief, a free pattern by Karin at orangeflower. This started out life as some hand dyed Coopworth fiber I received for christmas a few years back. It's not the softest stuff but it drafts easily and so was great for the total beginner spinner that I was (and really still am).
I split the top lengthwise into two batches, spun it as fine as I could manage back then and plied them together, hoping to maintain the color changes a bit better. With the colors close in value and shade, there wasn't much barber pole effect anyway.
Sometimes I do swatch... shocking, I know. I find hand spun yarns vary greatly when it comes to gauge so it behooves me to test it out and not rely on yarn size. Actually, for this project the fit isn't a big deal -- no worries if it's a little bigger or smaller than the commercial spun stuff.
Hand spun yarn is so very interesting to watch when knitting it up. The drape on this was a nice surprise.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
