Was I complaining 2 weeks ago that it was too hot?! Well it isn´t any more. Just the right weather to start thinking about socks, scarves, mittens (that´s for my sis!).
Although I still don´t have a wheel, I want to spin so I dyed that SW merino top,
I spun it on my spindle,
and made a 3ply out of it:
The last picture is most colour-true. It is very soft and a bit thicker than sock yarn.
I could make very comfy, thick socks out of it.
I dyed some merino yarn I received. I tried to go for fall colours and
fashion winter colours. Grey and purple are everywhere here in the shops.
To finish here is a link to a smart way to make cotton yarn. We all have tens of those in the cupboards so that´s a possibility to use at least the old ones. I could imagine one could knit the yarn into bathroom´s mats.
I wish you all a nice week-end.
