Before my move I told you about this roving I had spun up from a Perchance to Knit roving.
I bought this off of a destash sale she did about a year ago. It was 2.8oz of Corriedale in an unknown colorway which I’ll name “Retro”. It’s a mix of silver, yellow, orange and brown.
I started spinning it in June 2007 and finished spinning it this January.
I got about 220 yards of yarn with it and I’m pretty sure that if I’d had a full 4oz of the roving I would have enough for a pair of socks. Although I’m not sure I’d knit socks out of my handspun quite yet.
I think that it would have been a great candidate for Navajo plying but I don’t know the technique yet so I just plied the 2 strands together. This is what it looks like now.
It’s not my typical colors but I like the fun and retro-ness of it.
I can’t for the life of me manage to make the nice little piles like Alyson does, even after she explained to me how she did it…
I’ve already started spinning my February fiber but I’ll keep it to show you next Monday!
