For my new project, I am using a selection of yarns. The first is a combination of the rolags I bought at Festiwool, Hitchin and some grey merino I had in my stache.
I am also adding in some of the very white Polworth fleece, which I hand-carded recently:
I also have some purple and grey merino which I will work in.
This is how the finished project will be: a short waisted button-up cardigan with a large collar:
So far I’ve done the back up to the armholes in a plain purple merino. First picture gives the true colour and the second picture shows the detail with the flash turned on:
The flash sure makes a difference, doesn’t it. The first pic is very accurate.
This project will not be finished quickly. I am still spinning the wool into yarn and in between I am working on other projects. However, I will come back and show you as and when I finish each section. I don’t have enough of the purple to finish the back so I may use the mixed purple and grey from the armholes up. Let’s just wait and see shall we.
Meanwhile, five weeks to go until my new grandchild appears. It’s getting exciting. Pity they are in South Carolina. We won’t be visiting very soon!
Beautiful ! Some of your yarn looks very much like my handspun Jacob Sheep yarn. I am looking forward to seeing your finished project.
Thank you Kathy. The Jacob sheep yarn is ‘la creme de la creme’. I have yet to spin with that gorgeous fleece. 😀
