Oh my!!!

I just listed some yarn I experimented with. I think it turned out fabulous!

I plied one of my handspun skeins with some thread that I beaded. After I plied it I realized I needed to dye it and decided to go with light blue. It is beautiful!!!


Another experiment was some merino and mohair. I spun up some merino one ply. Then I spun up a mohair/merino blend. The mohair was so shiny and I wasn't sure how it would dye. Well.......... it stayed super shiny and also photographed really well!


Now for some lucky person to purchase and make something amazing with them! Actually the two would work really well together because I used the same sky blue.

Anyway, I am off to go spin some bananas! Also known as superwash roving dyed with a variety of yellows. Hopefully I won't GO bananas!!!
