Some yarn

Some spun by me, and some not.

I’ve been working on this Blue Moon Fiber Arts sheep to shoe kit, colorway Ravenscroft. It was an 8 oz package, so there was a lot to spin. I am about 3/4 of the way through but completed a bobbin last evening

This is way more yarn than you can imagine. And I am terribly proud of it. It is probably my best work yet. Can you see the subtle shades of green in the black? Stunning!

I also picked up some Noro. It is a wool/cotton blend, and even though I don’t typically work with cotton, I have high hopes for this as it looks almost braided, which I hope will lend it some stretch. I picked that up at the big little knits sale.

Now, I am having some trouble with the pattern I picked out for this. The pinwheel sweater. I wanted to make matching child and adult sweaters, which I think I can do. Keep in mind that the Noro colorchanges will be a bit more organic than what is pictured in the pattern. My trouble is that I cannot figure out if I like the sweater just because of the interesting design and construction, and will find it unwearable, or would I actually wear it? Is it too artsy to be worn? Or would it be viewed as an interesting piece? I can’t decide!

  1. The Ravenscroft is gorgeous, Shells! I love the subtlety of it.

    On the sweaters, I think they’ll be gorgeous. Definitely wearable, not too artsy at all. And the Noro! Well, it’s no secret that I love their colorways. I think it’s awesome!

  2. What a coincidence! I started on my pinwheel sweater for my duaghter just yesterday. Maybe we should start a KAL, lol.I have had it in my queue for a long time. However I’m not going to make one for myself until I lose some weight.
    I love the ravenscroft, so wellspun and lovely color.
