I stepped outside to take a few pictures of yarn, and this was the sun trying to burn through the spring morning fog. I was stepping out to take these:
I took a small bit of this to sample undyed. It’s Louet’s new Wool/Linen. Holy cow is it nice. I need to swatch but it’s some nice stuff and I’ll be getting more for the shop for sure.
This is the yarn I mad eon Julia over the weekend. She is a sweet little wheel. I set her up with the lace flyer and away I went. Two ounces later, I had 300 yards. I was thinking I wanted a finer yarn when I started out but then I changed to a heavy lace weight. I remembered that while I have fun making lace, I almost never use it. I like my shawls to have a little weight to it.
If you want to know more of my thoughts on Julia, and other’s thoughts, you can read them on Ravelry. We have a pretty good discussion running.
