Njor - God of the sea. Lace weight and fractal spun. It has a light blue-grey through black gradient from one end to the other with colour repeats in the same gradient throughout. It’s disgusting how gorgeous this yarn turned out.
2 ply spun to match colors with a slight disparity for mixing
..the best part is that I’ve got a whole nother 4 oz of this lovely stuff. Not sure what I’m gonna do with it but it’s gonna be awwwwwwesome. As you can see, I kinda love this stuff, hence the 9 million glamor shots…
Might get woven into something. VERY high probability of it going into a super spiffy knit/crochet shawl of some sort.
This is a scarf that I spun and knit for myself a few years ago. (Yeah for me!) I still where it all winter long.
I spun the yarn from BFL/silk blend from Fiber Optic Yarns, and it was an incredibly easy spin. The pattern for the scarf is based on a baby blanket pattern from a magazine I got back in the 80’s. The write up of the scarf is here.
…sorry about all the pictures, but I LOVE this yarn. Love how it looks, love how it feels, love how it came out. It’s soft and lofty but smooth-feeling and bouncy and uggggh I just want to roll around in it forever.
I spun and wove this throw a few years ago. It is one of my favorite pieces. Part of that is because of being able to cross something off my bucketlist, and part of that is because I really love this weave structure.
The fleece is a natural gray Romney fleece from Triple R Farms. I spun the entire fleece, and divided up the skeins according to evenness, with the most consistent skeins being reserved for the weft. Actually, I was pretty consistent with the spinning, so for the warp, there was only one skein that got spread along the width of the warp among the other skeins used for warp chains.
The weave structure is a variation on a 3/1 rib. I did have a bit of a problem with the selvedges, which I have since learned how to avoid.
