Okay, this is some hand dyed merino (dyed by someone else) spunn quite thin and navajo plied. Unknown yardage, But enough to make a small project.

2  Finally, The blue Alatus sweater. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Fnugg on: July 15, 2008 10:55:38 AM
Finally I have the internet connection and time to post my most recent finished knit.  My first project shown on craftster. Grin

Pattern used: Free pattern from Canary Sanctuary's blog http://canaryknits.blogspot.com/2007/09/alatus.html
Yarn: An unknown, dark blue wool, really itchy
Needle size: 3 (metric)
Mods: The chart is not hundred percent accurate, as the original was a bit hard to read on my monitor (Probably best to print it out, I didn't have a printer). And I started the neckline two rounds late, because as usual, I wasnt paying attention to the pattern. The gauge is a bit tight, as I didnt bother to swatch, but that is all right, as I am a bit smaller than the measures in the pattern.

This is the first sweater I've ever knit, and it worked out more than okay, I really recommend others to try the pattern. I would really like to see more versions of it. Smiley

(taing pics of your back, on your own is not very easy.  Wink )

I was hoping to be able to get better pictures of this before posting it here, but summery weather has been quite absent. Maybe later. Sorry for the messy mirror. It looked clean when I too the pics.  Huh

This project can also be found on my blog ( http://emmaknits.blogspot.com/2008/05/alatus.html ) and on ravelry ( http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Fnugg/alatus ).

My camera doesn't do macro very well. Tongue

Me first! Me first!  Grin

Haven't got much done this week, but I'll show it off, anyway.  Smiley
The colours aren't the best, as daylight disappeared a loong time ago, and I never remember to take pics when the light is ideal. Better pictures might pop up in a while.  Smiley

The tree frog. Some green and blue merino:

Touch of spring.

Icy water. Still on the bobbin. I have no idea what to do with this, navajo ply, ply with thread or just leave it like it is. I would love to hear what the rest of you think.  Smiley

5  My first attempt on dying. Merino tops and food colour! in Dyeing: Completed Projects by Fnugg on: February 20, 2008 03:24:43 PM
So, now i have had my first attempt on dying wool. I used food colouring and vinegar, mostly because it is cheap, I don't need a respiratory mask, and my mom lets me use the saucepans in the kitchen. (She doesn't have any old ones that I can use for the more heavy dye types.)

So, first a pink bit that was only a test. I actually liked the pink, so I wish I had more of it. And I am not the type that likes pink at all.  Roll Eyes

Second attempt:

Third attempt. I am not so pleased with this, I was trying to get yellow green and brown, and got yellow, green and some strange red blue green and purple mixture. But the finished yarn does look all right.

Last attempt. I was aiming for sea green and blue, but then I ran out out of blue.

ETA: The wool felted a bit, but with a session of proper predrafting, that wasn't really a problem.  Smiley

Woho, finally I remember to join fiber friday.  Grin

First some yarn I spun on my spindle, and navajo plied. The green one is merino, the other is a big mystey. Tongue
The brown became very uneven and full of very thin and overspun areas (first try on this type of fiber, I have only used carded whool before.  Roll Eyes ) so there is some interesting areas with curls poking out.

And here is what I have produced today, after my wheel arrived. The white is the first attempt, and the pink is the second attempt. A lot of overspun areas, and not so even, but I am happy with the result. I was fearing that this would become much more ugly and full of trouble.  Smiley
