I have several biggish projects going right now. 3 sweaters. Plus a vest my poor son has been waiting for months for. I was going to get it done this weekend. I was. But I'm someone who can't work on only one thing, especially a big thing. My fingers get itchy for the instant gratification of a small project.
And I had this incredible yarn sitting in my cupboard, which I got from Melissa a few weeks ago. I had told myself I would hold off using it until other stuff got done. But I couldn't stop thinking about it. It's gorgeous. So I caved yesterday afternoon and made these.
Abby at Folktale Fibers spun this. It is made up of separately dyed pure shots of colour which are spun into singles and then plied (2) together so every 2' or so is a new and unique colour combo which is constantly entertaining and lovely. In my haste I neglected to take a photo of the skein, so I took a quick one of the other half of it after doing the first mitt.
Is it weird to be in love with a yarn? I don't care.
