Yarn Along

This is my handspun effort plyed and drying (very slowly in this arctic weather) by the window.  I really hope I've spun enough for the Milo I plan to cast on this evening (if it ever dries). It's turned out kinda fingering here and bulky there. Knitting with it will be a bit of an adventure.  One day I'll be able to spin evenly and to a particular requirement.  For now we'll have to settle for the rustic look!

You can't tell from the photo, but the roving was pale blue and maroon, a bit of an odd pairing if you ask me, but now that its spun and plyed its morphed into an all over purple colour, which is a pleasant surprise.  Good things can happen when you step outside your comfort zone!

Starting The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe tonight.  I'm so happy to finally know who they all are and where they all come from after 30ish years.

Happy Knitting!


  1. The yarn is beautiful! And the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is one of my favorite books. I just finished it with my kids several weeks ago, we are moving slowly through the whole series.

  2. it's lovely dee, i only wish i knew how to spin!

  3. It's beautiful! I want to spin some day, but not yet! Can't wait to see your Milo... it's one of my favorite knits!

  4. Lovely spinning! and I do see that hint of blue :)
