Finally I am spinning something for myself. It’s the beautiful Lavender Hedgerow I bought from Greenwood Fiberworks on Etsy.
It started life (with me, at least) as this:
I love the beautiful colors in this, and that they’re softly muted by the darker veins running through it. One other unexpected delight is that once the rope was unbraided the colors lined up evenly when divided in two. What this means is that when I spin each half, they SHOULD line up relatively well when I spin the two singles together.
The first single is already finished, and I’ve started on the second. I’ve no idea how long it may end up, but I’ll find out soon enough. Now I just have to decide what to knit with it.
Suggestions would be welcome. I’m thinking a lacy scarf in a repeating pattern so I can use as much of the yarn as possible.
