Sock Yarn


I have finally spun the wenslydale fibres that I dyed in the Monday Class a few weeks ago. I am very pleased with the result, so I am going to give the hank to my friend Rhiannon.

She has been helping me pack my dyes, so the hank is a reward for her hard work. When she makes the socks I will post the picture for you to see. In the mean time I am going to knit (or weave) a scarf in the hank I dyed at the same time, so it will match!

Thanks Leigh, I must admit, I was rather pleased with the colour, although I had wanted a more plum colour (more red, less blue)! Usually I would have done tests of the mix, I use, but there was no time in the class situation.

That is a delicious looking hank - my favourits rich shades. And your previous post showing shades the Pure Tinctoria dyes can produce is really inspiring - thank you
