The fiber is from Greenwood Fiberworks Fiber Club June 2012. It's 4oz Polwarth. I wish I had more of it, but oh well.
I wanted to use my hand carders, and decided to rip the braid into pieces, like this: the color runs were a little short.
Then I arranged the pieces into color groups, and hand carded them.
The resulting yarn, which I spun semi woolen, and chain plied, looked like this.
When Kelly asked me to test knit her new hat pattern - Stormont, I grabbed my Metro yarn and knit it right away:
What a lovely design! Unfortunately, it didn't use up all my yarn, and I wanted to use it all in one project, so I ripped it back to the prim, used that and just kept knitting, until almost all the yarn was gone.
And that's the story of "Metro".
