Mosaic and Spinning

Walk in the woods

I've begun the mosaic portion of my wrap.  This kind of knitting seems to fly off the needles because it's so much fun to watch the pattern develop.  Also, you can see how much bigger Mr. Newton has gotten!  He's 10 months old now, and yes, he was about to bite my yarn when I took the picture.  We're still working on a few things around here.  


I've also started a new spinning project for the new year!  This is Malabrigo Nube (100% Merino) in Arco Iris.  When I've spun other colorways of Nube I've just divided it into thirds and spun the singles on three bobbins, then plied them to make a three ply yarn.  This particular colorway has more going on than Aquas, Zarzamora, and English Rose, so I decided to chain ply it to keep the colors from getting muddy.  I think I'll be happier with the finished yarn this way.  I'm spinning the singles to 50 wpi for a fingering weight finished yarn.

Have a great weekend!  Stay warm!

Arco Iris has always been my favorite colorway. (in yarn) I spun some when I first learned to spin, and while it's pretty, it doesn't speak to me the way the yarn always done. Now that I've been spinning a few years, I think I should see if I can get it again and try it. I think I did the original as a 2-ply. I'm thinking Navajo ply would get it to be closer to what I would want.
