Tudor Grace is finished. I don't have an action shot, so I am including a link to Anne's Tudor Grace on Knitspot.
I knit this using Posh Yarn's Lucia that I received in a present exchange last year from Celadon Pool. It is lovely. She sent me two, so I think I will use the other one to knit a matching hat.
Blocking wires are still on my wish list, and the bedroom was so cold that if I pinned it out on the bed it would have taken days to dry, so I gave it a soak using lavender-scented shampoo and dried it on the ironing board near the wood stove. Someday I will give it the decent blocking that it deserves.
Kid mohair fresh out of the dye pot and hanging in the shower. I am struck by how it reflects light and how lovely it feels.
The plan is to spin this and then ply it with the merino that I finished spinning last week. I believe the mohair will give strength to the merino.
... and it is starting to look like something recognizable.
Mmmm, blue. Looking at my projects, I think this is the year for blue and purple.
