So far this Romney Lambswool is spinning up quickly. I am loking forward to working with the brown and rose in combination. I also grabbed four ounces of a merino/silk blend - can't wait to get moving on that!
Isn't this gorgeous? And it is so soft. I have a specific person in mind to be receiving a gift from this.
I plied some of the violet Lincoln Cross Wool I had been spinning on and off for the past couple of months (maybe longer - time compresses when school is in session). It looks okay - fairly balanced.
These are photos of the exact same spool, but they look radically different. The top photo is closer to the actual colour. You can see a touch of grey in the top picture. This is because periodically I added small handfuls of grey in with the purple, so when I knit it will have the occasional soft grey and purple striping. I hope I get the results I intended!
I have to get the needles out and get to work - Christmas is only two months away!
