Spinning and knitting.

Finish with some lace yarn I have been spinning, I love spinning lace but it takes it’s time.

Here is merino:

Wool: 18 mic merino from Wollknoll in Germany.
Weight: 83 gram / ap. 3 ounce.
Length: 412 m / 450.50 yards
WPI: 46

Doe you think this was thin?😛 just wait to I tell you about Optim, hi hi.

I begin to spin the Optim Nancy – Chameleon Colorworks send me, she told me to predraft it lightly then it would spin like butter. She has right, it spin like butter – I love it. But it is also so easy to spin lace, to easy because if the 18 mic merino is 46 WPI I wonder what this will be since one single tread is thinner.

It has also done some knitting, May that is the LYS owner at To Damer are now selling yarn from SWTC and I bought some Karaoke. That is 50% soysilk and 50% wool, it is very soft and wonderful to knit with. I was going to knit My So Called Scarf pattern, but the yarn is a single tread so it fluzz up very easy. So then I just knit 1 k and 1 p, it was enough with 3 skeins since I used 40 sts.
I gave the scarf as a birthday present to my sister, as you can see I was not quite finish so I knitted it finish at the party😛

  1. Så masse utrolig nydelig!! Må jo koste en formue med så masse nydelige fibre?? Hundene dine var nå skjønne – fikk lyst på fler selv jeg🙂 Selger du eller spinner på oppdrag?

  2. Heisan.

    Takk for de fine kommentarene🙂

    Jeg selger garnet jeg spinner, det er på vei en litt bedre nettshop enn den jeg har i dag. Har jeg tid kan jeg også ta spinne oppdrag.

    Leter en litt så trenger det ikke bli så dyrt å kjøpe ull og fibre til spinning, men ja det er nok ikke alltid en billig afære. Spesielt fordi jeg liker litt «eksklusiv» ull og fibre😛

  3. Your Optim is lovely. I have some of that in the shop and had a heck of a time with it. I’m tempted to go back and try again. Though the first bunch I spun I made into a lovely hat that is soft and silky and I love the hat more than I loved my skein of yarn.
    Of course all of the other stuff is fantastic too. You go girl!
