I often pick up yarn at the local Salvation Army, usually smallish balls of random fibre, but I lucked out with a largish ball of some sort of beige "homespun." It might be Bernat Roving Yarn:


I was soooooo bored with it and couldn't think of anything to do with it in that state, so with repeated overdyings involving food colouring and Tintex acid dyes, I have something much more exciting:

This is very pretty! It will be interesting to see how it knits up!

I would love to do a personal swap for stuff for my lonely, empty walls!
