Some Finished Items

It appears I have a thing for Malabrigo Yarns at the moment.

The following are my three most recent finished items:

Buttercup by Heidi Kirrmaier in Malabrigo Worsted (Cape Cod Gray)

North Roe Shawl by Dodile in Malabrigo Sock (Eggplant)


and Featherweight Cardigan by Hannah Fettig in Malabrigo Lace (Black Forest)

and I also have two pair of socks on needles in Malabrigo Sock.

Keep smiling :-)

I'm in love with my Wenslydale

Recently I bought some A Verb for Keeping Warm Wenslydale in Abalone and I'm in love. For sure it isn't as soft as merino, though I'd say not quite as scratchy as Shetland but what a dream to spin. Those lovely long staples just draft so easy and in no time you have a bobbin full.

Next time I'll show you the plied product. I used the Andean method with a very handy tool.

Keep smiling :-)
