So a while ago over on the Ravelry group, I decided it would be fun to have a Christmas swap. About fourteen of us agreed to take part, which being even numbers would make life choosing swap partners much easier.
The concept behind the swap was to give a hand spun skein of yarn to your partner at this special time of year... a way to say thank you for being a good yarny friend this year. The giftee would then knit it up as part of our knit-along through December and January.
After a brief conversation with my swap partner I decided that tones of purples and blues would be my best choice in yarn colour... but how to go about it... dye something or card it?
I went with the carded option, as I love spinning with rolags. This is colour Snozberry, which is available to buy in the shop and is inspired by the film 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.
It's a difficult colour to photograph, but I think you can see the purple and blue tones set against crystal sparkle.
What are you making and gifting this year?
Have a wonderful day... Sara x
