Besides sounding like it should be an episode of Scrubs, my new yarn is named after the fiber colorway.
The fiber was the February fiber from my Spinning The Seasons fiber club. It’s 50% Tussah Silk and 50% Merino, which is a very lovely combination.
I decided it would be lovely to make in a laceweight singles, but since I’m still pretty new with the wheel, it turned out to be a little uneven and sometimes laceweight and sometimes fingering weight. I will get better though.
It’s quite lovely, though I can’t say I love the yellow parts. The way the yellow mixed with the white, it sort of looks like someone sweat on the yarn. I hope that will blend in with knitting and not look so much like that.
I’m going to make a shawl with it, and it’s going to be gorgeous. So, without further ado, I bring you My Funny Pink Valentine:
I must say that spinning with Merino and Silk is wonderful. The yarn is so soft and smooth and shiny. The shawl I make with it is going to be totally gorgeous! I’m really excited about it.
