Sometimes you come across a skein of yarn that is so lovely that you MUST name it! Or at least that is how I feel at times.
Last night was the perfect example. A month ago I traded a friend, G, a set of sock blockers for some of her lovely angora handspun. Last night I got to take it home. It is super soft and cuddly, and so I thought while at SnB last night that it needed a name. Lloyd is what I came up with. Don’t know why, but it just suits it.
Here is Lloyd all caked up!
That is 220ish yds of a fingering weight 2-ply angora handspun. One ply is from “Bonnie Blue” and the other from “Pearl”. I love knowing exactly which animals this lovely yarn came from.
I couldn’t wait to knit up Lloyd, so I started right in this morning! I chose the Woodland Moeibus Scarf. I think it will do great with the angora and but ultra cuddly when complete.
I can’t wait to get home tonight and work on this lovely!
