This is the smaller skein of the first handspun that was spun and plied completely on my new wheel Etty. It’s merino, blue and teal blended, by a gal I know up North. She has a drum-carder and is fantastic at mixing fibers and colors. Let me tell you, it’s sooooooooo soft and squooshy. This was my first order from Woolgirl. I decided to order from there due to seeing what you get after your 7th order, and well, I was hooked. These skeins are destined to become a pair of “Springtime in Paris” socks from the Six-Sox Knitalong. Since they’re pinky, they’re obviously NOT for me. 🙂
These are socks that were made in barter for a set of bronze dpns. I need to wash and ship them.
A better close-up. The trade for the dpns is closed, but when it opens again next year, I’ll be sure to post.
Next up: baby hats and more handspun.
