Of the many things we dug up from Jaqueline’s stash, one of my first loves was this braid of a mysterious fiber in a gorgeous teal.
After spinning up the Viola, I decided I was ready for a relaxed 2-ply, one where I could really try to max out my yardage.
This yarn is my favourite yet. 387 yards of a gently variegated, super soft yarn in a lovely colour.
I wanted to knit socks, but decided not to risk it, since I don’t know the fiber content and have a nasty habit of walking right through anything that isn’t at least 20% nylon.
Instead I settled on another Luna Viridis cowl. The yardage is perfect, the weight (a sport/sock) is perfect and I’m excited about using my own handspun in something so textured!
That is some seriously scrummy yarn! I don’t think I’d knit socks with it unless it was explicitly sock-yarn, it’s too pretty :P
Beautiful!!! Nicely done!
