step 1


When I decide to begin a new project, the first place I go to is my stash.  Like many of my friends and accomplices, there is enough stored away to keep me busy for a very very long time.  Usually, hopefully, I can locate what I'm after.  Not always. It's generally best to go hunting with an open mind, as in the picture above. I had no idea what I was after when I searched this time. The lovely dark chocolate is a Romney/ Border Leicester that is all that's left from, if I believe the receipt found in the bag with it, a 12 lb purchase at Rhinebeck in 2007.  And, if I remember correctly, half went to a friend, another 2 lbs was spun and knit into a sweater years ago, and the last (I think) of it, about 24 oz. was carded with 8oz of that dark blue blend merino a few weeks ago.





NICE. That explains the colors.

Blending those two fibers was brilliant! This will make a gorgeous sweater, or whatever you decide to make with it.
