My first yarn for 2019! I really want to keep this yarn but I plan on giving it away as a surprise gift tomorrow to my workmate who wants to knit some woolies for her first grandchild who just happened to be born in December on my birthday!…hes obviously going to be an awesome person like me!..wink wink..
2ply 200g, 246 meters, 11wpi/DK, merino bamboo & shetland fibres.
I spun up these blue green fibres over the weekend. The blue is called Lightening – its 70% merino and 30% bamboo from Cat and Sparrow fibres, the green is called Green Jersey its 100% Shetland from The Shepherds Hut.
I’m making this yarn for a friend at work. I’m hoping it doesn’t have the barber pole effect too much when I ply it.
I also noticed on my Instagram last night that the first yarn I finished on January 1st 2018 was also made with blue and green fibres!
I’ve turned into the type of spinner that buys all these gorgeous fibres and then doesn’t have enough time on the weekend to ACTUALLY spin them!..
So no more wasting most of my weekend on Instagram..because I spend a heck of a lot of time looking at spinning, knitting, crochet, weaving etc that other fibre artists out there post.
So what did I buy… I bought some gorgeous handdyed fibres from The Shepherds Hut ..some are shetland and some are merino/bamboo..
Love em..now to spin them!
