I'm travelling for the holidays, and this year, I decided to bring a spinning project that I had from years back.
These were two small samples I got from various places, and I decided to combine them to stretch out the yardage and weight I could get out of them. :o) I had roughly double the weight of lighter blue than the darker, so I decided to do a simple three ply with two strands of the lighter blue and one of the darker.
I also spun them on the thin side to, again, stretch out the yardage. I thought that the final product would end up being a fingering weight, but it is appearing that it is still a lace weight. Of course, after it's bath, it may fluff up. I'm actually hoping for it! :o)
Here it is in a skein!! Squee! It's pre-bath still, and some areas I'm thinking might fluff up, but others seem like they'll still be lace weight after the bath. I shall see in a bit.
And here's the close up! The color of the other picture is definitely closer, but this one does a good job of showing off the variation in the intensity of the darker blue. :o) I, foolishly, left my niddy noddy home, and so I'll have to wait until I get back to measure my yardage.
As it is, it looks like I'll be knitting for the rest of the Christmas traveling. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! :oD
