First of all, I have to apologize to Aija for the craptastic photo I made of her lovely dye job last night. I had to snap a quick picture, though, because immediately after I did this to it:
I soon proceeded on to this step:
I am spinning the merino/seacell single of the two-ply I have planned, and I’m really pleased with the blend so far. It’s a lot like spinning merino/tencel, but with a little less shine.
I haven’t noticed any ocean-scent to the fiber yet, though that could be the pervasive smell of pot roast wafting up the stairs… (mmm, pot roast….)
There was one thing (well, one pair of things) that had a certain eau de fish-house about it.
They’re dry now, of course. That’s right, I finally finished the pair of Wine and Roses Mitts that I started last March!!!
My own handspun bombyx silk,
dyed by Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks “Moody Blues”
Knit on US 0 (2.0mm) dpns
And look! Another pair of socks! They didn’t stay on the sock blockers long – they’re already on my feet.
My needles are empty, my longest standing UFO is now a FO — what to knit next?
