the yarn is called traveling stripes because i spun it from scraps my boyfriend bought for me in copenhagen and after that they travelled in his suitcase to munich, helsinki and finally frankfurt. i will knit stripey socks from it when we are in lisbon next week. so the yarn will travel once more! 🙂
fibre: not sure to be honest. i’m guessing merino by the touch of it.
weight: 86g –> exactly 43g for each sock after winding it into two balls!
length: about 240m
scraps before spinning:
spun and navajo plied to preserve the colour changes:
wound into two 43g balls for socks:
oh, by the way. i’m soooo in love with my new canon eos 500d! look at the last photos and you’ll know what i mean *lol*
