This is my latest batch of wool off the wheel: 8 oz of two-ply wool in a luscious blackberry purple with shades of blue and burgundy. It’s gorgeous and soft and squishy… This ended up a slightly bulky weight, and I haven’t counted the yardage yet. I’m thinking it needs to be a Robin’s Egg PURPLE Hat – yes? With a big ol’ funky button? If there’s enough yardage I will also whip up a small pair of fingerless mitts, but I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. Hat first.
I don’t have much more fiber stashed… Next out of the box will be a bag of the same wool as this purple, but in a burgundy base. After that, I have some green pencil roving and a bag of cut something-or-other uncolored wool, which will probably spin up on the rustic side (read: lumpy). There’s a couple ounces of soy fiber, which would probably make a nice lace cowl, and a bag of black alpaca that I’m hoarding. I’ve been trolling Etsy in the evenings, lining up a wish list of fiber to purchase if I get any money back on my tax return. Fingers crossed.
