Yarn porn


Yarn porn
Originally uploaded by Liralen Li.
This is some yarn I just spun, using the drop spindle and my Beaver wheel. Both are fingering weight, and the one on the left was hand-dyed by someone while in the wool, still. The one on the right I mixed from four different shades of wool and two kinds of silk. The subtle shades aren't showing on the right very well, I think because of the light and the contrast with the other yarn.

Not quite sure what I'm going to do with them, but some fine gauge shawl, shrug, or sweater is tempting.
