SAFF sort of ....

i don't have much free time at the moment ... (and i should be doing other things right now), but ... i just wanted to share my first handpainted yarn ... painted by me !


it's a dk wt. superwash wool, 320 yds. i'm thinking it might become socks. because, i kinda (sometimes) can't stop knitting socks.

anyways, the yarn was handpainted at SAFF in nancy shroyer's class ... creating a variegated yarn that does not repeat. ie: no flashing or pooling, no matter the number of stitches or pattern.

i am eager to knit this up, but i first have to have some serious free time, and perhaps finish one or two other things ....

OOOOOH! I can not wait to see what this looks like knitted up. I also want to hear all about your class. What fun.
