Small project progress
I really disliked the pattern or the colour or both. The scarf is soft and drapes nicely, but it is boring. I knew this when I cut it off, having decided to re-thread in a pattern that I think I will enjoy more.
I am almost finished spinning the second bobbin of the sage green cotton. The funny thing is that no one believes that the icky beige colour is actually green. So I tossed the first skein in a pot of water and simmered it for about an hour. What an amazing colour change. It seems that it really is sage green!
I tossed a few more handfuls of alpaca fibre into the wash basin yesterday. It is dry enough to put away, but it feels so nice that I'm leaving it out for a bit so that I can run my hands through it everytime I walk past it.
