She got it at an old mill that is still operating, powered by water. That is so cool. It is clearly undyed. Can anyone read this?The only thing I can read is that each skein is 100 grams and 267 meters, which is incredibly useful to know. The construction is a cabled ply. Here’s a clear definition from the interweb:
Plied yarns themselves can also be plied together, producing what is known as a cable yarn. To make a cabled yarn, singles are spun with the twist in one direction, they are plied in the opposite direction and the plies are plied together in the same direction that the singles were spun, adding even more strength to the final yarn. This makes a very stable yarn with great stitch definition (it's perfect for knitting cables, for instance).
This yarn has three 2-ply strands plied together. This yarn isn’t in Ravelry, although a couple of others made by APPAM are. I will have to think very carefully about what to make with it. Any ideas?
My friend Nathalie made a beautiful sweater earlier this year and finished it just in time to wear to a family wedding in France this summer. I wonder if I could get a smaller sweater out of this?This weekend, I’ll be doing my Knitters’ Day Out homework – classes are next Saturday. I also pledge to photograph my WIP made with Great White Bale Lot 3 (the blue skein) and share it with you. And I’ve started another super simple Felici Sport sock, this time for Boy 1 (who has the regular habit of growing out of his socks).
Hope your knitting is going well this weekend!
