Spinning Away

After my classes at Rhinebeck on dyeing, I have become sort of obsessed, what a surprise. First I bought a bunch of books, then I bought some dyes. Have done a little dying on the kitchen table, some good and some bad. Anyway, one evening I was surfing around on message boards about dying, and came across an interesting post. One thing lead to another, you know how it goes... found her blog, and then her Etsy page. Next thing I knew, I was buying fiber, as I tend to do. This is what turned up in my mailbox...

Not only is the color gorgeous, but I cannot tell you how soft this stuff is. I won't keep you in suspense any longer, she is stseraphinaknits, and the fiber is called Lambkin superwash merino. I spent about a day or two cuddling this lovely, fluffy stuff, but I just HAD to spin it up. Let me tell you that it practically spins itself. I have since bought some to bring to Nathalie as I am sure she will love it as much as I do. Here is the finished product, plied it up last night.


I was aiming for a DK, but I think that I got a little lazy and it is probably closer to a light worsted. Never mind, now I just have to decide what to knit with it, or I could just keep cuddling!

Oh, it is lovely! You could make a cowl with it so you can keep the softness right at your neck and face...
