I was right in thinking that Frosted Forest would give me enough for some mittens.
No pattern, just getting gauge, measuring a little wrist, casting on, and taking it from there.
I didn’t realize there’d also be enough for a tiny top-down raglan for puppy, a very important member of our family.
Gladiators do prefer well dressed Loveys!
50/50 Wool Top/Soy Silk
256 yards – 2ply – sport weight – 13 wpi
Every month I’m thankful for the double club.
Couldn’t resist immediately casting on for…
and there are about 100 yards left for some little mittens!
Actual temp this morning is -16. Glad to have a warm neck.
I hope you’re all having wonderful holiday seasons with lots of time for spinning. I know I have.
The December club has shipped, so you will receive that shortly. The fiber itself is just so gorgeous, adding color to it is like icing a cake. I hope you all love it. Want to see? *click* I’ve been spinning up a sample and this very much likes to be spun fine. I’ll be back with photos of that as soon as it’s done.
I did manage to finish up a big skein of last month’s Toxic superwash Corriedale and am having a hard time not casting on for knee socks this very moment.
That’s about 8 oz. and 500 yards of two ply, 14 wpi, pretty hard-spun yarn. I think it will make nice, strong socks.
Sign-ups for the next fiber club will take place near the end of next month. Current members will have first dibs, as usual, and then I’ll open it up to everyone else. I’ll announce things both here and on my personal blog.
Thanks for your continued love of fiber! It’s wonderful to see all the things you make from my wools. 🙂
