Hand-Dyed Shetland Wool by hello yarn in Landscape
I became obsessed with spinning this fiber last week. Each evening I would spin different colours. Green grass one day, fuchsia sky the next. Saturday morning I plied it, set the twist and put it outside to dry for the rest of the afternoon. Spinning still comes second to knitting. It’s something I do in spurts. But I can’t help admit that while spinning up this particular Shetland wool top the desire to make the huge mental and financial jump from spindle to wheel grew greater as these colours twisted round each other.
As for my knitting, I’ve been working on this. All other projects are on hold. Stockinette stitch is what I need now & so that’s what I must knit.
