Remember my roving? Course you do, it was like two days ago. Well today it was dry and I got pictures before the daylight ran out. And noooooow, they are in my etsy shop!!! I'm very excited about it. Here are the pictures that I took today as well.
Apple Crisp- 4 ounces of merinoAutumn Roses- 4 ounces of merino
Jack Frost- 4.25 ounces of superwash merino tencel, 50/50 blend.
So that's what I have been doing for the last hour or two. I am anxious to dye again and this time, blend and mix more.
I also mailed out my secret pal's package today. It's the second gift for her, and I hope that she likes it! With that I mailed some kidsilk I'm trading, some roving to melissa for being fabulous ( ;D ) and to my sister the baby sweater, matching hat, and gloves that she commissioned me to make for her. The gloves are the same one in this post. And here are pics of the hat and sweater. They came out sooo cute I didn't want to give them away!
It just came out so darn cute. I know that they will love it. I don't have much else in the way of news. So I'll leave you with that!
Found out about a contest from Melissa's blog. It's being held for those of use who couldn't make it to the infamous Rhinebeck. You are supposed to take a pic of some of your stash, and post it like it's what you got there. I grabbed a few of my favorite yarns that I haven't used yet.
