Tracie had wished me lots of yarn for my birthday. Her dedication of then calling my MIL to have her send the wished yarn is really touching. How else do you explain the box I yarn I opened yesterday from my MIL?
Can you tell what yarn it is?
I think a closer pic is in order.
5 skeins of Manos del Uruguay! Woo!
Included with the yarn were 2 books from Jil Eaton. After a year of Hubby insisting that I could NOT under any circumstances dress Jake in clothes, he’s starting to cave. He saw the pic of the Cabled Sweater design in Jil’s Top Dog Knits and thought it would be a fun way to showcase one of my cable designs. I can’t wait to complete the 4 projects that are on the needles now so I can start on Jake’s 1st sweater. 1st of many, if I get my way! And about that 4th project, I can’t wait to tell you about it.
Project #1: Mystery Project
Project #2: Big Dipper Scarf
Project #3: AWHF Shawl
So, what is Project #4? …………………………………. A Christmas Tree Skirt!
3 types of yarn will be used in the skirt:
- 100% wool in plain white
- SinFlex by London Yarns in Partita (sparkly green)
- Hand-dyed & Hand-spun natural fibers from Naturally Spun
Here is a pic of the recently dyed yarn. Isn’t it lovely?
For more pictures and an explanation of the dyeing procedure, please visit Naturally Spun’s Blog.
I’ll post more pictures of Naturally Spun’s yarn once she starts spinning it.
