Christy's challenge...

While browsing on Ravelry I found this challenge.
I received about 100 grams of beautiful Cotswold locks.
Already washed and ready to card.  I decided to card instead of combing because most of the locks were a little too short and It would have wasted too much and I would have ended up with a very skinny skein.

I turned it into a huge batt.

Started spinning away...

and plied...

Then it went for a colorful bath...
Here is the resulting skein for the contest entry.
I really love how it turned out beautiful and lustrous.
Now I wonder how long I'm going to be able to wait before I start knitting this yarn...it's just so tempting.


  1. It looks like a gorgeous skein of yarn, lovely job!

    1. Thanks,It's a fun challenge I still got to knit it for the second part and I can't get my mind exactly on the pattern I will pick.
