Christine has been busy with her leftover scarves using our hand dyed merino 600 fingering and the linen stitch.
Jeanne just finished her pink sweater using our hand dyed merino 500 sport weight yarn in a perfectly pink colorway.
I have finished the “Barley” cowl by Tin Can knits and have begun the next sample making project.
The beauty of this is that I have not really spun yarn in over a year. Last night I took home my wheel knowing full well that my Mom’s cat was going to see this as an opportunity to get killed…by me. She’s so adorable. I just think she was definitely a border collie in her past life by the way she hers my hats and fiber around the house.
So the first of my hand spun yarn is from the yarn color way “Remains of the Day” formerly known as 6:14 pm. This is Jill’s baby. We tried to get a more sophisticated spin by keeping our color ways as simple on the fiber as possible. The end goal: less wild card and more modeled. There’s still some flecky and stripey stuff going on, but that is the nature of the spin beast. Next time I will dot my i’s and make sure to align the lights with the darks.
We took a small trip out to the Woods off Aliso Viejo Pkwy. The boys were worn out but the effort was worth it.
The kid was a little bit tired out after the photo shoot!
