Taking the Yarn (oh, and doggies) for a walk
A nice day, sun out, snow melting slowly, and laundry sorted, so we decided to take a little walk up in the hills. The light was nice, so I took the opportunity to take this week's handspun out for a stroll too.
The two colorful skeins are Spunky Eclectic superwash Corriedale in "Party Dress", two 2 oz. skeins. Baby knitting? The gray is 4 oz. of Icelandic-Silk that I picked up at Rhinebeck.
This is about a sport weight, I'm thinking a cute little baby kimono with matching socks or booties.
No plans for the gray yet, but it might make something nice for a gift next Christmas.
It was fun to see all the animal tracks in the snow, mice, bunnies, deer, and I'm pretty sure, a mountain lion (I took pics, I need to dig up some comparative data).
Now, I should really spin all the things lingering on bobbins, eh? Silk, and baby Suri alpaca, and some merino-silk blend. But. Its all fine laceweight and takes forever, and with the snow and winter I want color and something fast.
So, I have a nice Coopworth-silk blend, or a Merino-silk blend, which one, which one...
