Hi, do you remember the hanks of wool yarn and Shetland tops I dyed at the end of last month, well I've spun up the 2% Red Lac (Rhine-M) and the 2% Marigold (Ambrosia) and here is the result.
I'm really delighted with the hank which is pun on my Jumbo flyer. I took staple lengths of each colour, alternating each colour as I spun. The staple lengths weren't accurately weighed as I wanted some overlap of the colours.
I'm going to knit it into a diagonal scarf, from a pattern I was shown in The Hague at Dineke's workshop last month, which I'm hoping will give me some subtle diagonal stripes. If I have any left I might just get out my Knitters Loom and weave a narrow scarf, too.
I've been teaching spinning, weaving and dyeing for over 25 years and have always wanted a way for the Monday Class to keep in touch with each other. So I've created this blog to enable them to keep up to date with what we are doing from week to week or month to month, at the class, or if they miss a week or two. I hope it will be useful. Please let me know!
