When I dyed it I was worried that he colors wouldn't blend, but when I was done it looked like orange sherbet! The picture I took of the whole shawl turned out really dark so I will take another and post this evening.
where I want, I guess I will have to play with that for a while, so if something it way the heck out there, you will excuse me!
So here is the yarn I am using for my Folk Shawl group. We will be knitting the Wool Peddlers Shawl from the Folk Shawl book by Cheryl Oberle. It is beautiful.
I dyed this all different shades of green and blues and some natural white. It came out very soft and about sport weight. It should make a great shawl for the cool eveings out by the fire.
I like to comb all my wool and then blend on my carder. It comes out so pretty and smooth.
Well this has been really fun! I can see where this may cut into my knitting time. And I need to change the date on my camera! I am going to give it a so at the SpingSupriseShawl knit I am in, this is a pretty lace pattern but it is a B----. I haven't gotten far enough to even post a picture yet!
