Downloaded pics of the yarn I spun up over the holidays ...
This is from Carol Lee's #1 wool roving (http://www.thesheepshedstudio.com/Wooltoprovings.html). A deeper burgandy than what shows on her page. Paul fell in love with it immediately and asked for a toque. There is 366 yards of double ply, about 16 wpi:


This is 481 yards, about 25 wpi. I carded about 50/50 corriedale with the blue from Carol Lee's #1 wool roving (http://www.thesheepshedstudio.com/Wooltoprovings.html). The pictures don't show the true color, which is more a purple than a blue. These will be knitted into socks for me:


A bulkier weight, heavy worsted double ply, about 220 yards. It is Carol Lee's olive green #1 roving carded with Carol's black mill ends (that she always throws in for free). The bits of yellow, orange, red are randomly placed soy silk:

Wonderful. Only someone who has spun can fully appreciate work like that.

Your handspun yarns are beautiful! How fun to blend, dye, spin, and knit your own creation. Thank you for examples of what I strive toward. :yay:

Oh Jeremy, say not so! Those are beautiful beyond what I have words for. Making me think more and more that I want to spin sooner rather than later.

Thank you all!
I started the toque for DH, got about 3/4 finished and he found one of his old Voyager toques. I frogged the new hat and follow the pattern of his old one.
