Mmmmmm. Greeeeeen. Something about it’s really very calming and just summery, you know? This one’s a lush, bright (but not too bright) green from Dream in Color – I’ve been working on a quickie knit shrug as a shop sample. Here’s the zoom out…
(new camera = lots of glamour shots)
I actually finished the main body of the shrug tonight at knit night, so it just needs a bit of sewing up and ribbing along the edge (by someone else, since I’m going on vacay so soon! really need to start packing).
Speaking of glamour shots…here’s some of the latest handspun.
Beauuuutiful polwarth/alpaca/angora, I think it was from Spirit Trail, purchase at Rhinebeck. I spun it up quite thin, although there are more than a few little lumpy bits that weren’t totally blended in – I find them charming.
Came out to about 488 yards in 2 oz, definitely enough for something lacey and light. Maybe a swallowtail shawl? Haven’t tried that one yet.
Trying to dole out the blog fodder over a couple days! More soon, including a new project or two…I seem to be having some startitis issues!
