The results are in…
…on a couple of things, actually.
I finished the spinning for my cabled yarn!
I actually had to run it back through to get the twist to relax a little bit. But I think it came out okay for a first try!
It has so many irregularities in the consistency throughout. Not huge extremes. But irregular just the same. It reminds me of a nubbly, novelty yarn in some respects.
I have to say, I love all of the color play in this yarn! Not exactly sure what to knit with it yet…But I’m sure it’ll come to me, lol!
I got this tiny little sweetie out of it too. It was the remainder of the 2-ply that was left over. I’ll find a use for it somewheres.
Whew! Now that that is out of my system, I can relax while I spin the next cabled yarn!
This is Koi & Cosmos, also from Sosae Caetano’s Duets Collection.
I can’t wait to see the colors in this one either! But now that I’ve spun a cabled yarn, I can take it easier on getting it done. It’s so crazy that I’m still excited about this stuff. But, as long as I am, I’m going to ride this wave! Plus, I’m such a sucker for color…
I do have another spin I plan to get started on that my mil recently requested. Once she saw the lace scarf, she requested a lace shawl or shrug for Christmas in beige or blue. Ummm…I’ve also never spun toward laceweight. Yikes! But, the scarf came out okay, so, we’ll see how this goes.
I have had this in my stash from Harbor Fibers for a while. It’s baby camel down mixed with tussah silk. So soft and yummy! How is it g0ing to work out in lace though? I don’t know. I have to look all that up and actually READ the tech on it. Ugh. But, I think it’ll be worth it to know for this project. Mmmhmm.
And in knitting news (this is, after all, supposed to be a knitting blog, lol!), I’m making some more socks. That’s right. Socks. Still no real pattern, although I’m inserting a mock cable. The swatch looks good! We’ll have to see if it holds up well as a sock though.
And that’s pretty much all that’s going on here folks. Just more playing around with stuff….
Oh…you were interested in those results? LOL! Okay, okay…
