If at first you don’t succeed…

…ply again!

Nope not going to apologise for that at all because it’s true.

Remember the fugly yarn that got a prettier colour from the last post. Well, now it’s had another pass through the Hansen to increase the ply twist (Cheers Sharon) and though the dye job made it better now it’s even more betterer!

Well, I could hardly leave it as it was after Ursula had dyed it so beautifully could I? It’s still balanced (hurrah) and comes in at 790 yards for 220g. I’m planning to turn it into a linen weave scarf  or maybe hitchhiker sometime soon, can’t decide which. I just have to finish my Terra shawl which has been lingering a bit due to having a problem with aching finger and wrist joints.

Now I love love love it even more than before and I’m even more convinced that…

…WOOL IS THE BEST THING EVER!

    • Thanks, yes I passed it through in the same direction, anticlockwise. As for the balance, no idea but it is yay!
      I guess the moral of the tale is not to be afraid to tinker, wool is very resilient.
