Well, I missed the contest deadline for our Blue Mountain Handcrafts group on Ravelry, but I finally finished my blue batt. The Knight and I were working on wrapping the yarn on the niddy noddy during the crazy storm that rocked the city, and then, I gave it a nice bath.
It dried overnight, so I snapped photos while the girls had their first trip outside of the morning.
This was my first true laceweight yarn. I spun extremely fine singles and then plied 750 yards or so of them with a blue metallic thread. THIS is one yarn I’m keeping for me. While there’s plenty of room for improvement, I think it’s going to make a lovely shawl of one sort or another.
Not all of the yarn got plied with the metallic thread. When I ran out of thread, I just navajo plied the remainder.
It turned into a nice, fingering weight yarn. Pity I only have about 135 yards.
That’s a close-up of the laceweight. You can really see all the extra bling from the metallic thread!
So, what are your plans for the weekend for the last weekend in June?
