Laceweight Coopworth Handspun-dyed

This is the Coop. from Merlinthecat that I posted the single on the bobbin and dyed locks of last week.

See how she's turned into lovely, lovely laceweight?

Now I know why Merlin called this fleece "her boyfriend"! It really does spin and comb out wonderfully.

This green blend is my idea of a colorway, semi-solid, same-tonal family, this kind of stuff usually knits up really nice.

Not quite as even as some of my other recent handspun yarns, but overall averages 20W WPI which makes it about right for a nice laceweight.

Lace scarf you think?

Oo! I dig that sheen it has. And of course it's green, that therefore makes it wonderful as well.

Lace scarf yes! It's lovely, and has such a nice sheen.

Yes, lace scarf, yes! I think a large or long one. Perhaps in Lily of the Valley pattern.
Oh, wait a minute, not my yarn! Darnit! Truly beautiful. It is amazing that you spun it so perfectly and so tiny in gauge.

You are amazing. As always.

Yes, that would be just perfect for a lace scarf. Beautiful colour, and that sheen is amazing.

Lovely and luscious! Beautifully spun - I am the same colour as the yarn with envy.
