Pretty Pinky Purple Polwarth
It had been a while since I'd sat down with the wheel and some wool, so a couple of nights ago I pulled out the dyed Polwarth sliver that I picked up at Birkeland Brothers in Vancouver.
I love the softness of the Polwarth, it makes me happy I bought a pound of undyed to play with.
The purple dye on this batch wasn't exhausted, after a wash in Eucalan, the wash water was so purple, I had to do a vinegar rinse. Now it seems set. I Navajo plied the single and ended up with a nice worsted weight yarn.
Of course, I did buy the roving with the intent of knitting something for the baby with it, pinks and purples...
Oh yeah, that white stuff, a dusting of snow! Yep, even though the grass is greening up nicely, and the tulips are poking out of the ground, the white is still falling. It was practically a blizzard on my drive to Durango yesterday!
