September project on the needles

I have finally started on my September project. My project was to knit something with pre yarn. A shawl is on the needles.
Someone asked what a pre yarn is. It`s when the wool is at a stage between carding and spinning. The pre yarn can be used for knitting or decorative felting. I´t can be knitted alone or together with spun yarn. The pre yarn is very very soft, and I love it. There is probably another word for it in English. Please tell me which one. Now I have to hurry to get done before september 30.
Good luck with your projects everyone.

Lovely! I would call what you are working with roving. If others want to know more about it google knitting with roving.

Gosh that is beautiful! I have never used that yarn but it is very popular to knit from it here in Norway in these days. Looking forward to see it finished!
