We had a gorgeous weekend here. The plants in my garden loved it. Even though the sky is gray today, there is finally some green outside.
All the spring green coming up around me has made me want to spin the green fiber I got at Rhinebeck.
There was about 16 oz total and I have about 3 oz of singles left to spin. I needed to ply some of it to free up some bobbins, and I love the way it is coming out.
It is very squishy and varies between DK and bulky. The coloring is working out how I wanted it to, with one strand a fairly consistent olive and the other much more variable. It’s still obvious that I’m a novice from how uneven it is, but I haven’t set the twist yet so hopefully it will get a bit better.
I think I can have this yarn ready to cast on within a week, and I would love to make a springy cover-up in this green. So what should I make with it? I was thinking Shalom, but I’d love other ideas. I estimate I’ll have about 450 yards when all is said and done, so a vest or similar is probably the way to go.
