This spun into this....
I bought this fiber from Judy Gunn in Centerville Utah. She is one of the most knowledgeable spinners and dyers I know. The color wave is DD's Delight. The colors were chosen by a friend of Judy's who's name is DD. To go with it I also have the jet black. It is a lovely and very soft Merino. One lb of each.
Spun so far 8 oz of each. Its sitting in a water bath as I type. It will become a stranded cardigan using a Dale of Norway chart that I have sitting around here somewhere. The swatch will be knit, the numbers figured out and the knitting will begin. Eight more ounces of each color are the backup just in case.
The plan is stranded cardigan with siamese sleeves so I can have some kind of "control" on the color.
If you click on the pictures the color shows a lot better. For some reason the tiny pictures on the blog look washed out.
