I started spinning this braid of Polwarth back in March. It's the Walk in the Woods colorway from Misty Mountain Farms.
It had a weird color thing going on with just a splash of dark blue and brown in one place.
I finished it yesterday. Every bit of it. My bobbins were uneven but I made a plying ball to use up every last inch.
It's a two ply fingering weight. I'm not usually a fan of the barber pole thing because it shows off how uneven my spinning is.
After a good soak I could see that this skein is also a bit on the high energy side. That's what I get for spinning during a pandemic. I must have been peddling like a crazy person to get this much kink in a two ply.
I think it needs to be a highly textured neck thingy so hopefully it will calm down. As should I.
It's wonderful. I think it will be perfect as a neck thingy! :-). I sure miss spinning.ReplyDelete
The final color is pretty and interesting - I can see the brown in it, but I don't see a hint of the dark blue anywhere!ReplyDelete
Ha! The skein I finished plying yesterday was much more relaxed and balanced than the other two. This will knit up fine! I do like the fiber--it's soft!ReplyDelete
The color of the finished product is just beautiful!ReplyDelete
Pretty yarn. I can only see a hint of the blue. It will make a lovely “neck thingy”ReplyDelete
Oh I think that would make a lovely lacey something!ReplyDelete
Interesting yarn! I never would have guessed that it would be that color? Is that common?ReplyDelete
It's beautiful. The color is subtle and would make a nice shawl.ReplyDelete
Yes a necky thing or a shawl:) Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Again, I see the magic of what goes into making something and I love it! I see what you mean about the energy and I think it's going to be a lovely addition to whatever you choose to create!ReplyDelete
Ooh! It's gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you make with it. I'd love to have a sweater knit with that colorway.ReplyDelete
Theres always a majic at work when spinning from a braid, lovely subtle colours in your spinning xReplyDelete
