This week I finished spinning and plying a gradient skein, I made the batt back in September, it's a super duper soft and indulgent blend: Baby Llama, Corriedale Finn X, Alpaca, Merino & Cashmere. All natural colours.
Here it was on the drum carder:
And here it is all spun up:
It's a fingering weight, the skein weighs 134g and about 441 meters. I'm thinking a shawl, any suggestions of patterns?
Before I go I just have to share this little gem I found on Ravelry, it made me giggle - "accessory for fingerless mitts" :P
This is a free pattern, pattern link here.
Sparrow (Rachael) is away this weekend at a bluegrass festival, lucky her! I'm not if she'll manage a post for Cat & Sparrow, but we have some exciting stuff coming up soon, so stay tuned :)
Thanks for dropping by, there is more fibre arts fun at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Indulge your creative side and join the party!
