I finally spun a skein of each colour for my long sweater, I still have to spin some moorit and purple, but at least I can begin test knitting. The grey skein is straight off the wheel and hasn’t been washed yet, so it looks a bit flat compared to the others.
Sweater SAL del 2
Der sker da lidt, omend langsomt med Spindeforeningsprojektet. Der er nu spundet 200 g rødorange, 150 g sortbrun, 100 g moorit, 100 g lilla og 150 g grå. Jeg har til 200 g af hver, men jeg kan jo ligeså godt komme i gang med at strikke og så spinde efter behov/hen ad vejen. Det grå fed er helt frisk fra tvinning og ikke vasket, derfor ser det en anelse fladt ud, men der skulle fotograferes mens solen kiggede frem.

I love all of those colours! I can’t wait to see this sweater come together.
Thanks. And today the entire world is white, amazing compared to that photo from yesterday.
Beautiful colours! That purple looks wonderfully rich and sumptuous. Do you already have a design for the jumper?
Thanks! I need something warm in a hurry, so it’ll just be a plain vanilla straight up and down thing with broad stripes. I hit a blank when trying to think up a design, so now I’ll just knit. I’m contemplating making the sleeve stripes only half width compared to the body, how do you think that would turn out?
the wine color is so luxurious looking! hat did you get that color with?
Thanks! I’m very pleased with it too. The orange and purple colours are acid dyed, not plant, so no real magic involved. 😉 I use Ashford dyes (because that’s what I first came across)
Q – Beautiful!
Thanks – I’m trying to get around to finishing the sleeves, so I can wear it!
