A little brown

October 30, 2006

Continuing the ongoing insanity – here is another fly-by entry. [NOTE: I’m still being a moron, so your comments on this entry from earlier today are lost. Comment again, all 6 of you… I am also not sure why the format on this entry has gone wacko. I will back away from the computer now.]

I finished a hank of that brown bluefaced leicester I started last week. I am not a brown person but there is something about this shade that I totally love. It had so much luster that I’m not sure the photos convey it.

Toby was snoozing in the sun so I got him to help me with the pictures.

It is about 3.3 ounces and about 160 meters, give or take. I have a WHOLE LOT left to spin so I think I will get quite a bit of yardage. It is navajo plyed and seems to be about worsted weight. I want to use it for a pillow, it is so cushy.

    Your BFL is simply beautiful. You seem to have completely mastered the Navajo ply. I think Toby agrees.

    Thats beautiful! I can never get the hang of navajo plying. Always get my fingers tied in knots. Say hows your Junk store find? The Jumbo spinner. My husband has been staring at the photos you posted trying to figure it out so he can build me one. Have you used it yet?

    Toby looks so happy with the yarn, his toes are curled! I love the rich brown color and you’ve done a great job spinning it. I’m looking forward to seeing it knit up!

    Lovely yarn, Caroline! I already like browns but I agree with you that this is an especially nice color. Your kitty seems to be enjoying your work!

    Oooooohhh, that’s what I’d like my BFL to look like. Cushy and soft and gorgeous. Yummy!
