238 yds. of squishy 2-ply worsted weight yarn, from 4 oz. of falklands wool in five plum pie from Hello Yarn.
I navajo plyed what didn’t fit on the first bobbin — so here’s 28 more yards of practice yarn. This is still overplied, but I’m getting into a rhythm with this technique. It is really hard to slow down my feet!
Also, zucchini pickles! I made these on Thursday, but the recipe said they’d turn a lovely shade of chartreuse after a day in the fridge. I know the green of my kitchen is tough to beat, but the zucchini really is absorbing the color of the brine. I’m taking these to a backyard bbq later today!
That yarn is so beautiful!! It has more green in it than it looked like initially!
I think it is a good thing that I can’t make yarn as well as buying it, because I would have to rent a storage space just for yarn!! I think if I actually spun the yarn, it would be so precious to me that I would have a collection rather than a knitting stash!
The skein is gorgeous! You’ve convinced me that I should really try this spinning thing … maybe my furniture will have picked up a tag-along spinning wheel when it arrives. Hope the zucchini was green and yummy!
Yep. And that’s they way it’s done! Hello Yarn – there’s just nothing like it. Congratulations, lovely skein.
Your worsted is beautiful – love the colours.
Absolutely gorgeous. Totally gorgeous. I LOVE those colors.
that skein is some serious gorgeousness!!
That’s a beautiful skein right there! I’m trying skein #4 right now (still have to ply skein #3) and continue to live in hope of reaching my handspun sock yarn dream…
It’s so yummy and squishy-looking! Nice!
This yarn is wonderful–the colors are so bright and yet earthy at the same time. When are you going to open an etsy shop? I want to be your first customer!!!
More like hello, gorgeous! Your spinning is getting so good, and the colors here are just amazing!
