A lot of colour.

In order to pretend that I 'needed' the spinning supplies that I ordered I thought I should spin something.  I had some roving sitting in the cupboard so I spent the weekend enjoying the sunshine and happy children and I set to work. 

The results are 150g and about 328 meters of colour. 

I wonder what I should pattern I should knit with it?   Nothing for awhile I bet, the Mr asked me to knit him a jumper and I have only done 20cm of the back, it is going to be a slow project...


  1. That wool is lovely! Could be a lovely vest for your littlie or a beanie or tea cosy or anything really. Love it!

    And good luck with the man jumper! I've been meaning to knit my husband a jumper but none of the 'off-the-shelf' pattern books have his size (100+ cm chest) - so I've been safe to date.

  2. pooy to DH's jumper - you have to allow yourself to do small things in between such a big project:)

    What ply would it be - it looks lovely!

    Oh and do you want some bunny fur to spin? I hav a friend with a bunny and she has been throwing away the hair when she shaves him - I have got her saving it if you want it!

  3. Gorgeous Becky - love the colours... what about a shawl?

  4. Oh Becky this is just gorgeous!!! I'm so looking forward to see what you create with this amazing hand-spun yarn..

    Hugs - Jodie :)

  5. I am absolutely love these colors! Love, love, love :-)

  6. Wow, it looks great! Yet another thing that I would like to learn - my stepmum has offered me her spinning wheel...
