Bow-chika-wow-wow, or, Yarn Pr0N!

The spoils from my Yarn Acquisition Expedition last Saturday with mum! 2 skeins of handspun Rio de la Plata. It’s an uneven bulky weight yarn with a nice ‘wool-y’ sheen. With it I got 5 skeins of Rowan Lambswool, marked down to $5 a skein because it has been discontinued. The pink of the lambswool is a perfect match to the handspun as you can see from the third photo. Which is which? Who knows! It’s perfect!

I’m swatching, and envisioning some sort of sweater with the body of it knit in the handspun, and deep ribbed cuffs – or the entire sleeve, if I’ve run out of handspun – of the lambswool.

Pretty, pretty wool. Happy Friday, and to any fellow Canadians, Happy Long Weekend!
