Birch Bay Handspun

Birch Bay is back! Last time, I had just spun the roving into a fingering weight single and was just getting ready to ply the ends together on my wheel at home. Now it’s all spun up and ready to knit!

The color combinations are striking. The first half of the skein is a delightful blue, purple and magenta combination, which shifts quickly to the blacks and reds in the second half. The red and blacks plied together remind me of those burly red plaid shirts worn by lumberjacks and other outdoorsy types when they’re getting something done. With that image firmly in my minds eye, I think I’ll knit a cozy hat with my new yarn. Maybe then I’ll feel like I’m on an adventure the next time I run an errand down the street!

Stay tuned for the next Birch Bay installment!
