Earlier this year I dyed some fiber, which is my Spring ritual, when I get the urge to dye up something, as soon as it's getting warmer out. A couple of month later I spun these two fibers into yarn, and now I must hurry to get it in in my Handspun Friday's posts, before the year is out.
This is Norwegian fiber, rather course, but good enough for sock yarn. I wanted to keep the colors separate as much as possible, so I navajo plied it. There is one skein with 225yds. I love the aqua color. I should use it more often.
As 225yds is not quite enough for a pair of socks in size 11, I thought I'd spin up some semi solid yarn to go with it. I thought Blueberry would be nice.
I don't know what fiber that is, there was no label in the bag with the fiber. It's softer then Norwegian for sure, but definitely NOT Merino or some such. It was lovely to spin, and I navajo plied this one as well. Unfortunately it turned out squishy after its bath (well that's not the unfortunate part), and a little too thick to combine it with the Norwegian in one project. It's wound into a ball, just waiting for the right project to come along.
The boys, relaxing after a hard day of playing in the snow, sleeping, and eating, and sleeping some more.
