Gorgeous gradient

Postby Joy » Fri Nov 09, 2018 5:00 pm

My best friend had a significant birthday last month and as she's not a knitter I wanted to make her something special but fun. So I gave her a braid of fibre and she's enjoying watching it being transformed. She'll be getting her shawl for Christmas.
196

My fibre is a polwarth/merino d'arles blend and I have managed a 300m/84g which is roughly a 4 ply weight.

Thanks Janet. It was a gem to spin and I can't wait to get knitting. Just got a few other things to finish first.
