I just finished a new hand spun yarn. It makes me think of fat and juicy red, purple and green grapes!
I’m really pleased with it. It was very difficult for me to decide how to spin it. I was torn between long color changes (think Noro!), or something more barber pole-y. Barber pole won, as you see. I just love the bright contrasts I get with this type of yarn. It’s a very traditional “hand spun” look.
I spun this on my Ashford Traveller and I really loved working with these colors once I finally made a choice on how to do it.
I have a bit of a problem making choices. It’s quite difficult for me to choose one thing from a long list of options. It’s hard for me to let go of all the other possibilities, and that’s what has to happen when I choose one thing.
I used to have a very, very hard time in restaurants with huge menus. It’s much easier now since I just look at the vegan friendly choices. And, in Indiana, it’s usually a very limited number of items on any menu – so that makes it much easier for me.
I find I rarely eat out anymore; I used to love to dine out, but it isn’t the same now, I sit there looking at the menu thinking “I can make nicer things much more cheaply (and pretty easily) at home”. So, I’ve found that we just don’t go out very often now.
However, if I lived in a city with lots of fabulous vegan eateries, I’d be at a restaurant all the time!
So, the grape yarn is in my Etsy shop already. Go take a look if you want to see a few more pictures of it. It really is luscious!
Let me know how you like it.
