Remember back when US 3 knitting needles were way too small to knit a whole hat with, and you were like “even though you are my beloved uncle and you live in Alaska, even though this yarn suits you, even though I want to make you a hat from it, nothin’ doin’, because I am not going to knit a hat in sock weight yarn,” and it was just really unthinkable to undertake so many stitches, and it was 2010?

3 skeins of apricot fingering weight wool. This took more work to achieve than I would have liked… I’m still learning the process of dyeing. Basically, I should have just stuck with my tried and tested method of bottles, plastic wrap, and the microwave instead of trying something new (which didn’t work!). I ended up dyeing the yarn twice because I was unhappy with the first results. The second time I used the bottles. I’m happy with the color, though I would have liked it darker.

It’s for a lace shawl. I probably won’t need all 3 skeins, but it’s good to be safe. I’m test knitting specifically in the fingering weight for a very pretty shawl. 

IT IS BEAUTIFUL YARN! I HOPE TO SEE THE LACE SHAWL WHEN YOU MAKE IT!

The short version is: I administered epinephrine to my brother today, and we came out of the mountains early. They are beautiful, though.

…(pattern purchased on Ravelry) knit in 2 balls of Freia Fibers Fingering Ombre.

This is our ‘go to’ pattern in the store right now. It’s easy to knit and great when you’re in the car on the way to the cottage or sitting at your kid’s soccer match. 

It’s great for trying a hand dyed yarn that you have fallen in love with. We’ve used fingering and sport weight. Both thicknesses look great!

Lanifica | NEW LISTING: Shades of Grey.

Got a new battery for my scales, so here are five skeins of a playful 4-ply yarn handspun from four different types of wool, all in their natural shades: Jacob Black, Jacob Grey, Cheviot Grey and Shetland. I had so much fun spinning this yarn I think I’ll have to get hold of more in future and do it again.

Just a reminder! my Etsy shop also contains luxurious wild berry 5-ply yarn / caramel camel/silk / indigo singles / pink 2-ply wool / merino/silk blends / other angora mixes / a lucky dip box of interesting items. (The lucky dip box is getting pretty full and I will be replacing at least one of those pics as soon as I recover a photo of it as it currently is from my camera.)
