This is dyed commercial spun wool, slightly less than a 4 ply, but lovely to knit with. I'm using it in its original colour for the Sanqhaur gloves I'm working on, but it has dyed very successfully, better than I htought it would. Acid dyes in blue and yellow mixed. When this was done, I added more yellow and dyed the fleece in the post down there..... I suspect this might knit up nicely into a shawl, but want to do one of my own design this time, with a view towards a project next year.
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
