This is the Spring Green Roving. It was sitting innocently enough in the Big Tub of Fuzzy Delicious Roving with its compatriots. And I was sitting in the studio looking out the window at YET ANOTHER SNOWSTORM. And I was overcome, overcome I tell you, by the intense longing to handle something green.... So I dipped into the tub, grabbed the aptly titled Spring Green Roving, and spun it up. I didn't need Spring Green handspun for any project in particular so once I finished it up I posted it once again onto my Etsy site in its new manifestation as Spring Green Handspun Yarn. You can see a photo of the finished yarn below along with an apple to help you judge the color accuracy. And you can see it on Etsy by clicking here.
And here is a glamour shot of some of my latest studio finished objects. The socks will be appearing in a pattern soon, along with a male version that is not quite so lacy and much, much bigger. And the toe of the sock is pointing to a braided rug that I just finished up for a friend. She needed a small braided rug for her kitchen in front of her sink. This one is made from recycled T-shirts and laced with nylon cord which makes it not only reversible but also machine washable -- both of these things are excellent qualities in a kitchen rug. I tend to prefer wool braided rugs myself because the wool takes the dye more intensely and so the colors tend to be richer. But the colors on this one are not at all bad. I'll be posting more on both the socks and the rug -- this is a bit of a teaser for my regular readers.
If you would like to stay with us this is the room we rent via Airbnb. I would love to see you and give you a tour of the studio, some quality time at the knitting table, some scones and warm drinks.
