I am knitting this last prototype of a pile of samples which are from my next pattern, and which will highlight this Autumn’s designs ~~ a set of mitts & hats! Just had to photograph a little teaser, because the sun was streaming in through the window and making my yarn glow, a bit of a yarn-henge moment!
I do love this yarn, which is such a surprise, from wool I made on blending board and spun up into this very tweedy yarn last weekend. But by next week I will have this pattern up and running with legs, thanks to Wendy, Yvonne, Jane & Dawn for test-knitting!
Your handspun yarn looks gorgeous. 🙂
Thanks Wen, such a surprise, and this be the mittens sample. 🙂
And thank you so much for test-knitting the pattern! 🙂 xx
So adorable! Now the rose colors are popping out.
oh wait,….no Hazel brown seems to dominate….I can’t decide!
Thanks Sorcha ! You’ll see in person soon! I think its a very beautiful play of light grey, amber, and rose, with a bit of dark brown too.
Thought I’d say; the main fiber was a blend of dark brown and beige wool, and I blended into that, on the blending board, white alpaca, wool in colors of ruby, dark pink, and amber. I think it’s the ‘amber’ the golden brown which you are liking?
