One more silk ball spun into yarn:
74 meters out of 20 grams, fingering weight. Worsted spun.
The “bunny batts” that Gwen the Random Knitter gave me at the Knit&Knot Wool fair:
Two skeins of 68 meters, each in a gradiënt.
I dyed 500 grams of a Merino sport in a nice cool light grey:
(Cake for white value.)
It’s for a Pumpkin Ale cardigan which will have a different cable motif on the back panel, I’m leaning towards the cables from A Floral Affair, by Hanna Maciejewska:
The dyed yarn is beautifully soft and bouncy. And round plied. Very good for cables. I dyed it in my big pot. 5 skeins of 100 grams can be swished around in it comfortably, ensuring a reasonably even dye.
The skeins for the workshop Mushroom Dyeing are properly mordanted now:
The wool bloomed beautifully. No spinoil residu. But they do feel a bit sticky because of the alum.
And I just finished plying this Merino Silk blend:
Dyed by Passe-Partout, spun into aran weight, 80 grams, 180 meters
This roving was fractal spun:
I took out some of the bright pink and also some of the bordeaux on the single with the short colour repeats. Because I wanted a yarn with a little less contrast.
The idea is to knit another Rikke hat, in a more greenish colourway:
Right, I’m off to set some twist.
