The peg loom has produced 2 samples - lots learnt there. More experimentation is required.
Also the 2 skeins of merino pencil roving from The Yarn Yard have been spun, plyed, finished, and one has been wound into a ball and a small knitted sample made. There was some difficulty with drafting the pencil roving, as I haven't worked with this before; the second skein was divided rather better, and was very much easier - the usual learning curve.
Here are the bobbins of singles from the first skein -
Plyed and finished, and twisted into a skein; see how the colours combine into yummy intermediate shades -
Then wound into a ball on the nostepin; it's about 18 wraps per inch -
And knitted up; the colour patches would, obviously, be different if knitted in a longer row. This sample is 30 stitches on a 2.5 mm. needle -
And, from last week, just a quick pair of Miser Mitts I devised in Shetland wool, after seeing the Endpaper Mitts on See Eunny Knit! - love this way of increasing for the thumb gusset (isn't "gusset" a lovely word) -
