Dorset X & Alpaca Kissed

Yesterday's spinning product met the dyepot this morning. Thanks to a lovely spring day of 16 degrees & sun - it's dry too.
Dye: Greener Shades Ruby Red. Midnight Black. 35% red. 65% black. 
Spun long draw. 
To be paired with plain Dorset cross dyed & spun in many colours.  Carded batts were dyed with large spots of varying hues of Greener Shades dye. 
After plying I will post a photo.

Minette Cardigan

Spun semi worsted this is the little ivory cardigan I've promised myself for a long time. I found the pattern at Knitty.com to use with a Romney 2 ply wool I spun after I finished my Olds level 5 work. 

I must yet find the right buttons for it.
