If you follow my business and posts, you notice that I don’t write much. I ENJOY dyeing yarn VERY much, and I LOVE to knit, but I don’t have a deep need to write about it. I’m coming clean, being honest here: I don’t really like to write posts. Since it’s important in this business, I’m trying; and I figure the only way I’m going to have any success with this (or sanity) is to be honest about it. There it is; thanks for “listening.”
Here’s what I’ve been up to since the pink lace shawl: “Two-Color Triangle”
From the Spring/Summer 2016 Vogue Knitting mag.
First I spun a 4oz Tempting Ewe bag from Clover Hill yarns. 454 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn. It’s the lighter-colored yarn in the picture.
Secondly I put some Wild Rose Suri Alpaca lace weight yarn (a gift from my youngest daughter, Bethany) with a hank of Wildfoot wool sock yarn, left over from another project.
The yarn I spun along with the combination of Suri Alpaca and wool made the two yarns needed for this interesting and fun shawl.
I’m also working on a baby blanket and a scarf. I’ll write briefly about those too since I’m nearly done.
I’ve been dyeing some gorgeous stuff, but nothing new yet…..soon…..and now the function to add pictures is not working, so I can’t even show you what I dyed. Sigh…..I’ll keep working on it.
