My Latest Spin

I've begun work on baby Dylan's second present. I'm hand spinning some special wool to knit up into the softest blanket imaginable (or close anyway).

I'm about halfway done spinning the 8.5 ounces of Merino/Tencel blend.
This stuff is a dream to spin.
It spins up like butter.
It has gorgeous hints of baby blues, grays, and silver throughout the wool and spun up yarn. I'm excited to knit a swatch to see how it looks!

Now to on decide (again, because I keep changing my mind) which baby blanket pattern I will knit.

For those of you interested, I purchased the roving from Spincerely. I'm a repeat customer. She has excellent customer service and has always answered my hair-brained questions that I throw at her. What's most though is that her dyed rovings are ridiculously incredible. I dye my own wool typically, but when I splash out and buy something fancy I head her way.

  1. Oh my goodness! He is going to be the most snuggled baby ever! :D I _love_ these blankets and am so grateful for him having such and amazing Auntie !!! we love you!!


  2. Aw, so sweet. Love that you're spinning it yourself.

  3. WOW! This is gorgeous!! Is it really pricey to buy, dye, spin and knit your own things??

    I'm a knitter myself, but i tend to go for the cotton yarns or the acrylics - I'd never dream of spinning my own wool!! :)
