A + B = C




These three pictures show the two singles of different but contrasting and related color that I spun, and the resulting two plied yarn that came out of them. I am really pleased with the effect on the yarn. I can't wait to knit it up and see what it looks like...I love the heathered look. I'm not sure what I'm going to make from it (just what I need - another Unfinished project!) but I'm looking forward to using it. It's so soft and wonderful. Both fibers were Corriedale, the solid lavender is NZ Carded corriedale, and the multicolored is just Corriedale roving which was then hand dyed. I'll put pictures of any finished project I make up, but somehow, I don't think that's going to happen until after the holidays!

I see what you mean! Beautiful effect. And yes, the suspect roving from my blog picture was from Kendig Cottage...

Very nice Vickie. It seems like I've come across a lot of lavender, purple, and plum colorways as I'm viewing blogs. Just the other day I ordered a plummy blend in wool top. Maybe this is the transition from Fall coulours into Winter.

This is just beautiful yarn! I think anything in this colorway entices me. :-)
