Orion, spun

I’m sick today, but wanted to post photos because I’ve finished spinning and plying the yarn for my Spin to Knit pal from the Orion roving. I’ll trudge to the Post Office this afternoon to send it on its way.

Orion, spun. 50% superwash merino, 50% tencel
390 yards, fingering to sport weight –
perfect for socks!

basking in the sun

Weather Report: Sunny, dry, and cold – highs predicted to reach 18 F, currently 9. Sunrise was at 8:01, sunset will be at 18:36 (10h35m daylight.)

That is all for today. I’m going back to bed till the schoolbus comes bearing kidlets.

  1. Your Spin to Knit pal is a lucky one! That’s some lovely yarn, from a lovely roving. The yarn appears to be quite a bit lighter than what I was expecting from your picture of the roving, though; it’s always interesting to see how different the final product can be from the material it’s made of.
