I’ve got a couple news spins to share with you today! First, a braid that I got from the ISO & Destash thread in the Three Waters Farm Ravelry Group. Called “Mown Fields,” this braid of Superfine Merino popped up just when I was feeling like my merino stash was running a little low. I was so excited to spin it, this is the lone pre-skein photo I have.
Anyhoo, I just spun up a quick worsted 2-ply.
The other skein I have to show you today I have slightly more photos (sheesh, I was bad at photographing the last few weeks!). This one is a special pre-order I did from Three Waters Farm. Mary Ann does special orders from time to time — sometimes as part of a special SAL, sometimes to bring back a ‘vintage’ colorway for a limited time, sometimes just because it’s a special colorway. I love them because they are always gobsmackingly brilliant.
Radicchio is no different.
It was really a beautiful spin and I had a little fun with how I approached the colors. I’m planning to knit it into a Winterplay shawl, so I handled the colors a little differently, adding in longer color runs here and there for variety and added interest. I think will make it fantastic.
The finished skein hit the yardage I was hoping for as it came out over 600yards.
Two more finished spins, two more are currently in-progress! No rest for this spinner, you’d better believe that!
