Dicentra Gulf

First dye lot
(on the right)
Second dye lot
The difference in dye lots
1st on top, 2nd below
Spinner: Rebecca
Fiber
: Dicentra 70/30 Merino/Mohair blend in the color called 'Gulf'.
Details: 11 wpi, chained singles and a total of 505 yards.
Project info:First dyelot spun back in November 2006 and the second in February 2007. I chained the singles and
will knit socks with this yarn. Perhaps knee-highs, the legs with one dye lot and the feets with the other (feets don't fail me now) and this is because one dyelot has far more blue than the other. Or, conversely, I could do one sock per dye lot...that would be eclectically fun!

Hey - mismatched socks are the big "thing" right now. The yarn is so pretty folks aren't going to notice the color differenced much.

hey, then the socks would be almost identical twins ;-)

I love the colors! And I see the chaining is as lovely as usual :) (Thank you for the article, btw!)

i am so in love with your spinning. both dye lots look beautiful.

or you could do the foot and leg with different dye-lots and then swap the order for the second sock? (fraternal twins!)

Next time I see you both I need to touch your wheels to see if I can be blessed with some of your productivity and beautiful spinning ability.
