the North Shore yarn

Remember the merino fiber I bought on our trip to the North Shore

Frabjous Fibers merino roving

It’s about 250(ish) yards of double-ply, and it’s time to sort out its fate. It needs anywhere from sz. 7 needles (hearty and strong) to sz. 10 (pliable and drapey). The overall hue reminds me of a cenote in Tulum, or like a photo of the Atlantic seashore with the saturation turned way up. It’s pleasant pizazz.

    GORGEOUS. I vote for the cowl. Though I do love handspun legwarmers. (You might want more yardage for those, though. Stripey handspun legwarmers?)
