Mystic Forest

Last Wednesday I showed you what I had on the wheel. Nothing new in that regard, I'm still spinning away on batt after batt of the "Mystic Forest" custom batts I made up on my drum carder.


But this week I have the first skein to show you. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. Not too glittery --- just the right amount of glitz for a bit of life when the sun hits it.

The first skein is 138 g / 3.75 ounces and somewhere around 298 yds / 266 metres. I estimate that I'll have enough of this blend to make about 8 skeins this size. I still have no idea what I'll make with it. Although I forgot to measure the WPI, I'd say it was about a fingering/DK weight.

Not a green lover but this one is very interesting. You're right, there's just enough glitter to make it interesting!! I'll be interested in what you decide to make.

Gorgeous yarn! Just the right amount of sparkle for something special.

Beautiful yarn and what a great color. How about a beautiful shawl or ruana?

Great idea Nancy, definately something worth considering.

I like that idea too "deep end". With my renewed obsession with weaving it might become a stole. We'll see. In all likelihood it will "steep" in the stash until the perfect project comes along.

I've queued up Forest Path Stole in my knit list. From IK Summer 2003.
