Yes people we have yarn!
Its 100% merino roving.... so yummy and soft!
Remember that big pink ball of roving I got for my birthday back in June?! well I finished spinning it on Sunday night, plyed it(navajo), and gave it a bath to work out all the kinks. Now I have some beautiful yarn. I put it outside yesterday to dry but that was one of the days that it really wasn't too warm, so it finished drying last night, inside.
I love it! (except for the fact that on part of it I over supn the singles and there are some twisty harder parts. I blame it on me trying to spin it while on a float for a parade) Now I just need to figure out what to do with it. Its rather bulky, thought I haven't figured out what needles to use yet. There are approximately 283 yards. I figured out how much went around the niddy noddy and then counted my wraps... voila, yardage!
I'm thinking I'll make a hat and mittens? or maybe a little shrug?! I'm really not sure, What would you make with this? This is the first dyed roving I've used, I can't wait to get some more!!! Next time I think I'll get some superwash and try my hand at spinning sock yarn, I've been wanting to for a while now.
Last night while waiting for this to dry I started a sock with my cherry tree hill yarn. I love the colors, so pretty! I'm doing a pattern off of knitty, can you tell what pattern it is?! Its fun watching the pattern emerge and seeing the colors play out.
We hit another milestone yesterday, pulling herself up to a stand. Please don't mind the mess behind her ;O)
And this one just because, I really really like this picture. I took it while I was spinning on Sunday. She loves watching the wheel go round and round!
