Inglenook has been doing Hobbit themed batts for awhile now. I happen to have two of them in my stash. White Council, and Thorin Oakenshield. I managed to spin White council on spindles and ply on the wheel in only 2 days. This is a personal record for me. I’ve got about 200 yards of gorgeous gorgeous 2 ply yarn.
There’s actually a bit of purple in there as well, though it doesn’t seem to be readily apparent in the skein.
Thorin Oakenshield is ready to be plied as well, but I am saving it for Wednesday evening, as I’ll be doing a wheel plying lesson with my friend Marja, and I need something to do that with.
These two skeins, ideally each about 200 yards, will make a lovely striped scarf I believe. Both of them are gradients, and both have similar color schemes, though one is a bit brighter than the other. I have a feeling that these are going to get knit immediately after they are done being spun.
