Twinkle, twinkle…

I’ve been dyeing fibre lately, but still have all sorts of bits and bobs of commercially dyed fibre around.  I spent a happy hour or so carding merrily through a mix of green, teal, blue and purple fibres, mostly merino and corriedale, with a bit of angelina fibre thrown in.

Photos don’t seem to pick up the twinkly effect that the angelina adds, but trust me, it’s shimmering away nicely.

At the moment, my plan is to ply this with the bobbin of laceweight singles I have from my second attempt at dyeing and (if there is enough yardage) to knit a cardigan of some sort using biggish needles to make it very lightweight.  But that could all change…
