Aurora Roving in Progress
Remember this lovely thing? It’s finally being spun, and by someone who knows what they’re about no less.
That person is not Mouffette, though she is clearly instrumental in the process.
It’s being worked up by the immensely talented Leslie Ordal, with an eye to keeping the different colour sections intact. It’s already looking pretty delicious – we (I say ‘we’ as though I am helpful somehow) are aiming for a 3 ply fingering weight yarn.
The plan is to knit this into something for my neck, something that will benefit from these gently shifting gradients, and something that I shall proudly wear when I finally hit the arctic and fulfill my bucket list item of shooting the aurora from further north than Sault Ste. Marie :)
I haven’t decided what that something is yet though, and I’m open to suggestions!
Thank you Leslie, Mouffette and the super talented folks at Inglenook fibers – I can’t wait to knit this baby up!
