Yes, this is the second one I've done. This one's a little heavier; it's worsted weight because I couldn't find the right solid colors in sport or dk weights. Since it's for a baby and needs to be washable and durable, I was pretty much stuck with acrylic. The Vannas Choice is very nice and soft. The Caron and Red Heart, not so much. I'm finishing up the last strip, which must be at least 5 miles across because I have resorted to two 29 inch circular needles, knitting off one and onto the other because using a single one is just too hard to move the stitches around. And no, this one isn't getting the I-cord edge either; I think I'll do a round of crab stitch crochet in the off white and call it good. Because I REALLY want to knit something interesting. With nice, soft, little yarn. Something that doesn't weigh 15 pounds to when I carry it to Knit Night. Something lacey and light and pretty. I don't know what it is yet, so stay tuned.
I finished up that mystery blue/green/teal roving, too. I really wish I new what this was and where it came from because it turned out fab-u-lous!
I Navajo plied this for a three-ply and it has so much bounce, it's just incredible. I just want to sit and squeeze it; it's way better than a stress ball! This might have been an "oops" from a dyer because it weighs 5 ounces; not a usual amount.
I also spun up the samples of pygora that I got from Applebright Farms last year.
Here are the two batches of fiber I got that day. The heather is called "Honeyberry Heather" and the solid is "Warm Coral".
The Warm Coral isn't really that red; it's much more subdued but no amount of Picassa-ing would make it the right color. I got 4 ounces of each, so I can ply them together for a sport or dk weight. I'm thinking this will become a nice shawl for Mom eventually.
And finally, just because Roxie said she was looking forward to them, go here to find the unicorns and sparkles.
