I've finally finished the wool I've been spinning for Baby #2's special blanket! It's been slow and steady and it feels GREAT to have reached this stage! The yarn spun up BEAUTIFULLY and I'm really really pleased with how it turned out. It's soft, bouncy with a bit of spring in it, and really warm. Not to mention decadent in its gorgeous pomegranate color.
- 80% New Zealand merino and 20% silk
- DK/Worsted weight (8-10ply)
- 933 yards total (853 meters)
I can't wait to get knitting on this blanket! I plan on something simple to show off the depth of color and richness of the yarn but with a soft and feminine touch to it. We'll see. I still haven't completely decided on a pattern. Speaking of which, recommendations anyone?
