The grey Wurm

Posted on: May 5, 2010

I started knitting the adorable Wurm hat this weekend. I claimed the yarn in a swap. The luxurious 50/50 Alpaca Merino from Plucky Knitter in the colorway “Ilsa Lund”:

Yummy yarn

I followed some modifications suggested by another Raveler and made this:

I have also been a little busy dyeing fiber

 That is a photo of a pound of Finn (love Finn, can’t wait to spin it!) and 3/4 a pound of Rambouillet (my dyeing nemesis-it just makes everything rather pastel-like).  It dried today and it now looks like this:

Braids of Finn & Rambouillet

Most of it will go up in the etsy shop (www.micamynx.etsy.com) soon. I have lots more to dye too!

I also managed to finish some spinning. This is the superfine merino from BeeMiceElf in the November 2009 club colorway-“Traditions”. BeeMiceElf fibers are always amazing to spin and the colors are gorgeous. This one is no exception.

364 yards, 2 ply, DK weight

Oh and did I mention that I named all the newly dyed fiber after criminal law terms? Victim and Trespass are already sold before I even got them in the shop! Maybe crime does pay!

Last, but not least, I finally got this nommy braid of merino/cashmere/silk from Limegreenjelly (www.limegreenjelly.etsy.com) onto the wheel

A beautiful heap of fiber

As can be expected, it is spinning up beautifully! I must acquire more!

So soft!
