Sheep to Shoe

I don’t know if it’ll actually get to the “shoe” part, but the fiber is now yarn.


8 oz. 3 ply. 750 yards of heavy fingeringweight yarn. It’s more barberpoled than I prefer, but at the same time, I like that I’ve put color into a bump of fiber that was predominately undyed.


Here’s the original kit in fiber form.

It’ll be interesting to see what it looks like knit up. Not that this will happen any time soon!

It’s a very cold day here in the midwest, and I will have to take Miss Butterfly to her art class today. I just want to stay IN today! This is going to be one of those days where I try to find reasons to send Mr. Ink out instead. Maybe I’ll get myself into the middle of a craft room organization session.

    • I agree with the barber pole yarn, though I find once it’s knit, I don’t mind it at all. I like the subtle color shifts. But just to look at? Not so much. I admit, I am hoping this one hits the needles soon, as I am interested to see what that barber pole looks like in a finished object.
