I looooooovvveee this accidental result. But please....hehe don't order this one..I can't remake this! It's an absolute ONE OFF...and even more the charming this way! (pictured: dyed rovings drying by the fire)

Lynne's keen to knit up a winter beanie with this lot...so I spun 80gms of the rovings into a slubby style...leaving 100 gms. 80 gms went into a neat gold ply hank leaving 20 gms. over. hmmm...what to do?
I grabbed another 60gms of white Merino (my bobbins hold about 80 to 95 gms depending on the technique I use) and spun them off together throwing in a little gold fibre as I went.
(pictured: Lavern Snowy....very chunky)
By blending the same rovings through the 2nd. hank it's a guarantee the two hanks for this beanie will go together beautifully....

I'm just loving this extra little hank...imagine this hank knitted up in a shoulder scarf under a nice winter jacket.
Well...that's about it for Sheepychic bloggings for this posting. I'm looking forward to an upcoming Sheepychic spinning demo with Broughton Lea's knitting group...so a big hello to all at Broughton Lea...put the kettle on!
All the very, very best...and thanks so much for logging into Sheepychic. Feel free to add a little comment...they make my day!!
