I have a cousin who knits and likes home-spun, so I asked her what colors she would like ~ and she said fall colors. So I’ve been on the lookout for some fall colored fibery goodness that wasn’t too expensive. Well, last week I was prowling around etsy.com and came across this lovely bunch of fiber.
8 oz of soft merino, I got it from Designs by Velvet’s shop. It came in two 4 oz bundles. I split the first one down and did a little pre-drafting and all I have left to do of it is these two little buns of fiber.
It is spinning up real smoothly and quickly, the fiber preparation is nice. Once I’m done with this 4 oz, I’ll swap out my bobbin and spin up the second.
It’s turning out a little more “woodland” than “fall”, but I think she will like it. Here’s a sampling of what I working toward, a little bit thick thin in the light worsted to worsted range.
I hope everyone has a great weekend ~ I’m off to the ocean tonight for the weekend ~ I am sooooo looking forward to it.
