I’m all packed.
Customer-type people, in particular, please note that I’ll be away from the 5th through the 13th. I’m taking a real vacation for the first time in 6 years, which means no internet access. Boy, do I shudder to think about what my inbox will look like when I get back! I’ll start working on orders as soon as I return and wake up properly.
I’m shipping this today and tomorrow. I hope you all love it! It’s a new fiber, and delicious.
The chart (see above photo) is all worked out. I’ve drawn heavily from the “Red Palm” sweater in Poems of Color. “Red Palm” has the subtle color shifts I aspire to with this sweater, so hopefully the chart translates to my yarn well. We’ll see- I haven’t swatched the chart!
8 oz. of body yarn has been spun, also.
Handspun from Fantom Farm wool/alpaca mix roving.
approx. 175 yards/ just shy of 4 oz. each, worsted weight
This yarn is a medium softness with very slippery feel and gorgeous halo. This was a real pleasure to spin.
Spun from one of these. Two more to go, if necessary.
See you next week!
