oy, not that many yarns this week! well, good thing i've come by to post this week, as it's literally been ages! although, i only have meager offerings!
not a great quality pic, but it's the best i could get of this yarn. this is a dk weight yarn. spun from roving dyed by lynne vogel for her pattern (ripple) in the spring 2009 edition of knitty.the colors are very springy, but to me they very much look like the dry grass/fields of texas in summer; everything is dry as a bone from the 100 degree plus temperatures (everyday) and then the pops of light blue and pink in the tiny field flowers that spring up! this yarn literally looks like my backyard right now!
and here is the yarn overwhelming my poor ball winder! i wish you could better see it, but that ball is HUUUGE!!!
this is teased cotswold locks grown by the sheepies and dyed by the people at homestead wool and gift farm with one ply of natural merino. this is a really cool yarn. i also have a second, smaller skein of this, as all those voluminous cotswold curls wouldn't fit on one bobbin after i plied it!
