I’ve been having lots of fun today…



Has become this:


It was really fast, being a nice chunky singles.

I also made this:


Which is a sample for a project I have in mind to use up lots of pink not-going-to-be-laceweight.

And then I did this: 


This is a silk/merino blend from Wingham which I bought at Skip North. I just thought I’d have a play and see what it came out like, then suddenly I had two bobbins full and it was 11:30 :-D I adore the way the different greens mingle together and then the white silk shoots strikingly through the yarn. I planned this to be a singles yarn and spun it nice and thick from the fold, but then I happened to see it kink back on itself and I was lost. This is going to be awesome as a 2-ply, I believe the technical term is ’squoodgy’, I added a bit more twist after that and will ply it up tomorrow morning.

And finally, I have been knitting industriously away at the Blue Sky Shrug this weekend and the end is finally in sight! Should be done in time to wear it in France :-D

    Keep on going with the shrug, it will be worth it when you wear it! Love how that silk and merino spins up!

    The rolags look gorgeous just as they are - what a pity to spin them.

    What are you going to knit from the green? I HATE it when I am asked that - I just spin it as it asks to be spun.
