This photo was the inspiration for the following dyed fiber:
I'm not quite happy with the greens in it, but as a dyed fiber without knowing the photo it is lovely.
This is Falkland fiber, dyed by Shelby of Spinning Awesome Good. It was part of her Fiber Club.
I decided to play with it, and made these skeins. They are all either navajo plied (natural undyed merino, gray Gotland, black merino, and one skein of the club fiber), the rest are three plied yarns.
I was going to use them right away, but of course, something else came up.
The undyed merino is wonderfully soft. One full bobbin of singles gave me less yardage than dyed fiber. Gray Gotland fiber looks wonderful but is the scratchiest of them all, and hairy.
I was going to do some mittens with this yarn, but now I'm not sure. It's no rush either.
I've also got my forth, and last Year of the Lace Club 2010 installment.
I know that I will not knit it. It's different for sure, and the yarn is soft and lovely. I'm thinking of maybe selling my kits from this year, because I will not knit any of them. There are three rectangular stoles, and one triangular shawl.
This was the first kit:
I overdyed the yarn and liked it much better.
This was the second kit:
Not "my" colors either.
The third kit:
Lovely red lace yarn.
If anyone is interested drop me a line. Thanks.
Have a wonderful weekend!
