Here are the five Shetlands. And a commercial yarn, the one that looks like rhubarb.
The brightly coloured sockyarn from Kleurvol is finished. A tightly plied 2ply:
It came up to one ball of 50 grams of 173 meters and one ball of 50 grams with 161 meters:
The sock yarn from the roving dyed by Wolop has become a nice round yarn with subtle colouring:
100 grams, 148 m. A little on the thick side but that’s great for socks meant to be worn in clogs.
I spun another roving dyed by Passe-Partout. This one:
Non-superwash BFL, a fibre we’re both fan of.
One half I spun from end to end, creating long colour repeats. The other half was torn into small strips that barely needed drafting. Just like that sugary spicy seashell coloured one I spun in the Tour de Fleece.
100 grams, 235 m of yarn. Very well suited for a pattern by Elizabeth Zimmerman. I recently bought the little book in which her garter stitch patterns are gathered. Knit on Knit all (ravelry-link)
Now I can grab whatever yarn I fancy and cast on right away.
