A Spinning Odyssey

My spinning wheel has been busy this month spinning these beautiful colour combinations from fibre hand dyed by my friend Brenda at Penelope Fibre Arts.  The fibre is Blue Faced Leister.  The colour combinations are:

Fall Bouquet


Northern Lights


Medieval Tapestry


Each soft, squishy 2 ply skein weighs 4 oz (113 gms) and measure 292 yards, 377 yards, and 277 yards respectively.

I would like to knit something simple to show off the intense colours to best advantage. Maybe some hats or cowls.  What do you think?

I have been steadily weaving since 1980. I enjoy sharing and passing on my learning.

    Those are gorgeous–I especially like the Northern Lights. I don’t know enough about knitting to know how yarn works. Would a long scarf, where you can see more of the color at one time, show off the colors more?
