I chose the vibrant yellow to start with.
Which became more gold after being spun.
This is a 2-ply that I managed to spin at 17wpi thanks in large part to a nifty little gadget called a spinner's control card that I bought from The Woolery. While my consistency still isn't the greatest, I'm quite pleased with the results. I always seem to have the problem of thinking I'm spinning consistently, until I start plying. Then I see all the flubs I did! I need more practice to be sure, but I'll also go easy on myself because this is really slippery stuff to spin. Fun, but slippery.
I'll be knitting this [along with the dark blue, once spun, in the above pic] to make my husband another hat. While the other hat I spun/knit for him is fine, it is heavy [navajo plied] and I'd like for him to have a hat to wear that is warm, but also won't crush his skull with its weight. [Note: I ain't kidding, that hat has some serious heft to it] *grin*
This next pic is because I was told that I only have pics of my cat on my blog, which is totally not the case. So, here is my hyper and incessantly barking sweetie with the tip of her tongue sticking out. I wouldn't have her any other way.
Keep On Knitting...
