Separate but equal
It’s been a fabric/sewing heavy post run lately. So let’s switch it up with some fibery goodness.
Remember THIS stuff from way back when?
I had wanted to ply them together (I don’t remember why) but when I tried it I was completely “meh“. Two gorgeous colors just blended and washed each other out. I didn’t knit a swatch (I probably should have) and I’m sure this would have knit up to an interesting tweedy mix. But really, how many purple/green/white tweeds do you see?
So I wound them into center pull balls and plied them onto themselves.
They’re each 4ozs of BFL. They were so soft, they practically spun themselves. They ended up working to a DK weight…maybe just a bit lighter? I always forget to take WPI before I post this stuff.
The roving came from one of my all time favorites on Etsy, Pigeonroof Studios. I adore the green, but the purple ended up a bit darker than I had hoped. But really – in this case I’m much happier with two separate colors than with one blended one.
Next up – more fabricky stuff because I finished a quilt top and got the most awesomest book from Amazon…
