do you remember Snicklefritzyarns i discovered at Stitches 2010 back in february? being a gnome lover and all-the fiber was hard to resist! but i did-what was i thinking??? here's what caught my eye at their booth-a gnome surrounded by fabulous fiber-what more can you want?
i regretted not buying any wool from snicklefritz -so what did i do when i got home from Stitches? went on online and ordered some BFL in the "gnome in the sierras" colorway. as if i needed more fiber!
can you say gorgeous? while spinning i was thinking about the sierra buttes. can't wait till the snow melts so i can get up there again! i am blessed to live in such a beautiful area.
i spun up each roving separately. OOPS! forgot to photograph the other roving.
see how different the two rovings are.
then i plied them together.
I'm so in love with this yarn. i only have about 200 yds. i might try this pattern. it's called 198 yards of heaven-sounds about right! it's a little shawlette. look at that fricken sheen. I love this yarn so much i'm going to show you yet another photograph. even though it looks just the same-but not to my eyes.
time to get off me arse and walk the dragon, water the garden and get excited about 6th grade math.
