Yes, again, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted 🙂 It feels like spring – a beautiful beautiful day in Ontario. Time to sort, clean and catch up…
A couple of weeks ago I had another birthday and wanted to treat myself to something special. I decided to make some pretty yarn inspired by amethyst…a little bit of sparkle (silk from india), a little bit of shine and bold bright colour (handdyed longwool) and a fair share of beautiful, bouncy softness (gorgeous handdyed cormo/merino cross recently purchased from mmfwool on ebay – I *highly* recommend it).
In the dye pot – the wools and some wilton’s violet icing colour….
I blended the fibres with hand cards and, voila!
The plan is to knit ‘Sabbatical’ by Connie Chang Chinchio…it should be awesome!
The wool from mmfwool is absolutely wonderful to work with…nice crimp, beautiful feel, lovely length….
The kids have been enjoying march break!
I’ve been working on some other wools as well…
Finished pictures coming soon for this and some lovely wool/silk mix yarn which I’m just in the middle of finishing up! Have a fantastic day 🙂
