When I purchased this roving, I thought it would spin up into a warmer green. As I started to spin it using my wonderful Golding aromatherapy drop spindle, the orange streaks blended into pink and the cream toned down the green. I continued spinning until I had enough to ply together in order to knit a swatch. Tina was perfect! I showed it to her and she said, "That's not your color!". We are going to have a fiber/yarn exchange in January so I know this lovely fiber will find a nice home with someone else in the building.
Luckily I organized my yarns and fibers in a cleaning fit a couple of months ago. It felt wonderful to be able to grab the plastic storage bins and pick something more appealing. I'll start on it this weekend. I have absolutely no idea what I will do with the finished yarn. I won't have enough for an entire sweater but I'm thinking of trying a raglan from Spin To Knit
. Probably knit the body and sleeves in a commercial yarn and the yoke in my handspun.
