Four Little Bunnies, All in a Row.
It’s not even at all, and I couldn’t love it more. It’s fat, and squishy, and altogether yummy! The silk content makes it shiny, and the wool makes it all plush and bouncy.
It’s got this lovely rustic fuzzy feel to it, and I still can’t get over the cuteness of my tiny yarn bunnies. It’s definitely not motivating me to go out and get a proper niddy noddy so I can stop using my arm for the purpose. They just come out so adorable and chubby that way!
More gratuitous closeups, so you can all see the gorgeous colors. I think that this yarn reminds me of the pebbles on the bottom of a stream. Greys, blues, and silvers all blending together. The color variations are a lot more subtle now that the yarn is actually spun up, but I like it that way. It has a very slight marled look to it that I find to be completely charming. I have a real love affair with blue, it may actually be my favorite color. It’s hard to actually pick, but I do find myself gravitating towards blue colorways far more than any other.
Now I’m just being self indulgent, but I seriously love this yarn. My first skein of yarn is too small to really be anything but a pet skein. This yarn, on the other hand, was destined for something specific while it was still merely a little fiber. We will see if it actually attains it’s goal. Despite the fact that this is eight ounces, I spun it pretty thick, and I’ll be cutting it a trifle close. Still, fingers crossed!! For those of you out there who are spinners, I have a technical question. I haven’t blocked the yarn. Should I? If so, what’s the best way to do that so that the delicate silk fibers won’t be sad? I adore this yarn exactly as it is, and I don’t want to do anything to mess it up. Any advice is appreciated!
So, spinners, what’s on your wheel/spindle? Knitters, what’s on your needles?
