yarn cake, that is...
I received my hand dyed yarn order yesterday from my friend Jennifer at Desert Garden Farms. She included a surprise hank of gorgeous hand spun in yummy browns! I love it! I also love winding hanks into cakes. It makes me happy and because I don't have a lot of free time, it makes me feel productive and prepared, so that when extra time arises I can grab a cake and go. So here you have the resulting cakes...
Aren't they beautiful? The 2 multicolored cakes of hand dyed yarn are aptly called "Caribbean Dream" and the gorgeous brown hand spun is comprised of lincoln , yak,silk,llama, camel & a bit of sparkle. Talk about luxury, WOW!
I'm calling this yarn "Hot Fudge Sundae" because that's what it looks like. YUMMMM!
And because the swift and ball winder were set up I also wound this, which was formerly a Tommy Hilfiger sweater. The fiber content is 55% wool & 45% cotton. Not bad for under $4.
Lastly, here's a spiral motif that I found in one of my afghan books. The sample afghan done in this pattern was gorgeous! I love spirals and have been rather fixated on them for the past year or so.
Here's a super quick snapshot of the sky last evening. Winter sky is always the best!
