My green yarn
It's finally drying. This is my Australian wool yarn that I found in a garage sale. It's pretty bulky and there's less than 500 meters so I''ll have to think hard about what to make with it. Right now I'm thinking some kind of zipped vest. The yarn took the dye so well I was taken by surprise. I had sort of thought it might be mottle-y because of the small amount of nylon content. I had a vision of overdyeing in a different color and making a blend but totally not necessary. It's more pastel than I had anticipated but still a wonderful new celery green. I can hardly wait to start swatching and playing with a design.
