Time to Buy a Lotto Ticket










This is the 3rd batch of yarn in a row that measured 460 yards 3 3/8 oz. All very differently spun. Merino/silk 50/50 again. Just for comparison's sake. This one is from FiberDenn on etsy. I bought 3 because the colors were so luminous. The yarn is 2ply, completely different in feel from that of the previous post. This one is bunnysoft and squishy, very light where the other was dense. The yarn isn't shiny, none of the dry silk feel. The pencil roving drafted itself. If you wanted to knit something with unspun roving this would be your best choice. Worth the money. Wouldn't want to burden a new mother with a handwash sweater but that would be the ideal use. The color in the roving picture is true. Another to add to my collection of grapey yarns.

Those are just gorgeous! Maybe a baby item that wouldn't need to be washed as often as a sweater, like maybe a hat?

Oh, that's really lovely. And yes, perfect for a baby sweater, if you're not going to just look at the yarn lovingly and pet it from time to time (which is totally acceptable).

Thanks for the suggestion on my blog. I thought I might make a primitive Lazy Kate with toilet paper rolls, knitting needles and a shoe box. But your idea sounds easier.

You are a great spinner and years ahead of me in experience. The results are gorgeous.
