Spring spinning and dyeing
Spring is in the air although we still have snow on the ground. Lots of robins this year in our area, my husband counted 100 in the park yesterday when he was walking the dog. I've been doing a bit of hand spinning. This is a first clip from one of my Romney girls and some hand dyed silk that I spun and plied together.
The pattern is a Lace Trellis Stitch (multiple of 11 stitches.) called Strips of Lace Scarf. I'm not sure what book it is from. I used 5mm needles.
Finished scarf measures 6 inches x 39 inches.
Another small ball of hand spun yarn. This is 2ply Romney hand dyed. I trend to spin fine yarns and it's a challenge to find things to make with it.
