My Constant Companion Bag

Here is the beginnings of my constant companion bag. I am using Cascade 220 in a brown and orange. I used up two skeins of the brown already - doubled - once you get past the base the rest is quick. Just haven't had time to work on it - I will be doing a slip st pattern on the whole bag. Wait and see! I am using size 11 needles.

I purchased 2 lbs of merino from a farm in CA - this stuff is gorgeous! I have washed some of it up in Dawn detergent and it is all dried and ready to be carded. I plan to do a 3-ply worsted weight. What to do with finished product - don't know.!!!
Just enjoying the process.


Here is the 8 oz of Dinosar all skeined after being soaked in a lavender wash.
One skein is different from all the rest as there was still some yarn left and so I had to wind it into a ball and ply on itself. It came out totally different . Colorway and the way it plied to itself. It is the one in the front of the photo - smallest skein


Here is 8 oz of Dinosar by Spunky Eclectic. I loved spinning this up. It is between sport and dk weight . Have no idea what I will use it for. I am contemplating a 24" Rigid Heddle loom so maybe I will use it to weave a scarf! Time will tell.
