Spin to Knit



I am very pleased with how the blue/red/purplish-black is looking. I spun and Navajo-plied one bobbin so far, and I liked it so much that I had to try knitting with it to see how it would look. Here it is on US 8s:



It is a lot softer than I thought it was going to be. And even the back of it looks good:



I like it so much, I wanted to keep taking pictures of it!

Awww, this yarn looks totally amazing! It seems to be so soft and cozy, perfectly warm, and the colorline you did is fantastic too! What a great job!

Hi Beth

I got the package today and I LOVE it! The scarf is in one of my all time favorite colors and the gold flecks are just enough to make it pretty and different. I am so amazed that it is your first lace project. It is beautifully made. How did you ever part with it?? and the mugs!! I was so not expecting something like that. They are a very welcome addition to my collection. They are beautiful pieces of art.

I will be taking pictures this weekend at the lake and posting them when I return ( that is if Blogger will let me- the pictures will NOT appear!)

Thank you so much for a wonderful swap. Just wonderful!!!

I love that yarn you spun too!You are quite a talented gal.
