Chocolate

(Spinning project update!)

The roving that I ordered from Paradise Fibers (along with the swift and un-dyed sock yarn) finally arrived! It was back-ordered at the time I bought it. It’s a beautiful, dark Coopworth roving. And it looks and feels like it was a carded roving, which is nice because that’s what I’ve been practicing spinning lately.

I spun the singles together into a two-ply yarn, and my sister is going to make it into a pair of gloves for a good friend of mine.

    Is that as soft as it looks?

    It is very soft and very squishy—knitting up beautifully!
