Nothing but Blue Skies from Now On

The weather has been all grey and wet here for ummm (feels like) ages ... so on the weekend I spun this up to remind myself that sometimes the sky looks more like this:

It is "ReadySpin" from Bendigo Woolen Mills - which I dyed with Sandolan dyes to a pretty sky blue - then I spun it with approx 16% undyed bamboo fibre. I think the shiny bamboo looks like Cirrus clouds - perhaps with silver linings :-)

I'm going to sell this in "a Coffee and a Yarn" - which is a fab combination of yarn shop + cafe in Newtown. Ellie, whose shop/cafe it is, has taken some of my hand-spun yarns and beanies on commission and they've been selling quite well :-) Yea!
