I finished my latest spinning project last night. Paris' fiber is fabulous and it was an absolute joy to spin. The colors actually blended to create the yarn I had dreamed they would. My ideas don't always work out that way, so I am really quite pleased with myself.
I am absolutely smitten with this yarn. I love everything about it and I plan to knit myself a sweater with it right away.
Back in July, I dyed wool from Paris sapphire blue, teal, and violet. To create this blend, I added scarlet and a bit of his undyed natural off white fiber to the mix.
I used my little drum carder down in the basement to blend it all together. I feel a bit like Rumpelstiltskin down there -off in a dark corner, cranking away, and creating something wonderful.
I'm hoping for sunshine today so I can hang my newly spun and washed skeins in the sun to dry. I can't wait to start knitting, and I can only hoping my knitting project goes as well as the spinning did. Wish me luck.
