I'm not a fan of cold. While it's only January, I'm already ready for it to be spring! In honor of spring, I spun up 1.2 ounces of roving that reminded me of spring flowers. It's 100% wool, averages sport weight, and 96 yards.









Thanks for looking!

Thanks for all of the compliments, everyone! I got the roving from sarahj2001 in the STS Winter Market.

Ooh -- gorgeous!  Just the pop of color I needed to see on a bitterly cold winter day.

I love those colors!  Your yarn looks so even and yummy to work with...did you make something with it already? Cheesy

I did knit a hat, but didn't like how it turned out. Partially because I found out that those colors really don't belong next to my face. It's currently sitting in the charity pile.

That's a great winter hat, when it's all gray and ugly outside and someone needs a pick me up. It's great to put it into charity, but if the need arises you can always frog it and make something for YOU.
