I could not wait to get this fiber in the mail, after seeing photos of it from others, who already had it in their hands. I loved both colorways the moment I saw them. It's FatCatKnits Mixed Blessings Fiber Club January 2011 in Merino wool. I think Ginny is dyeing the most amazing colorways.
The red one: 5oz
The blue one: 5oz
There are little snow flakes on both of them. I had to go outside, even while snowing to take pictures, to get the true colors of the fiber.
Here's what I did with them: the red one: 275yds, navajo plied merino
and the blue one: 236yds, navajo plied, merino (a little less, because Denny had to take a bite out of it)
I also wanted to make a 2-ply with both colorways together: 88yds, chunky
Here are the two colorways together: I want to use them together in a project.
And here's the whole family:
And because I love this yarn, here's another shot:
I can't wait for next FatCatKnits Mixed Blessing fiber club to arrive. It's already on its way!
Have a wonderful weekend!
