Fall Folderol

One of my goals when I signed up for the Three Waters Farm Top of the Month Club was that I not allow these deliveries linger in my stash. This week I’ll share two of these installments from the end of last year as I had just a bit of catching up to do. First, I’d like to share Fall Folderol.

This colorway was the November Top of the Month and dyed on 100% Organic Polwarth. Originally I’d thought it would be perfect for socks. My handspun socks that I made earlier this year were Polwarth as well and turned out well, so I thought I’d try to repeat the project. The best laid plans, however, often change, don’t they? I saw a fellow spinner spin up a heavier weight two ply of this colorway and it swayed me.

And the resulting skein…

fall-folderol-detailJust scrumptious!

This yarn has no project in mind for it just yet. For now, I’m just going to enjoy the beautiful colors in my stash. I’m thinking eventually I’ll transform it into a quick hat or something like that. Do any of you have any fave patterns for this type of yarn? I’d love to hear!

  1. This is so beautiful, and perfect for fall. My 1st thought is mittens, warm and cozy, so colorful they are show-offs in the mitten world. Just me thinking on a rainy day.
