A bobbin of scrumptious odds and sods. I love how all the colours are playing together as I tease out a few fibres while treadling right foot...left foot .... right foot ...... over and over the rhythm is soothing as I watch the colours of the wool play.
I begin to think even if this is just for the exercise maybe I can knit something, something easy would let the wool do the work. I hop over to Ravelry and browse the vest/wrap patterns. YES
I do not have enough
bits of dyed wool or enough time to spin double the length of yarn needed to make a plyed yarn.
How long is the piece of string I need?
1 kilometre is the best answer I was able to find after careful research/ guess. I skeined off 1km. of fine weaving wool. My choice is a soft warm brown colour with a hint of rose to ply with my eye popping spinning. It has been some lengthhhh...... of time since any dying was done but it seems to be a bit like ridding a bicycle. You don't forget.
Big weekend coming up Grand daughter's 11 Birthday weekend and Grandson is doing Karate Grading for his orange belt. We'll be there for all the celebrating. Where else would I want to be?
Hope you all have a happy weekend. Terry
