More with color and fiber

I started with this:

Then I turned it into this:

And, after washing and drying and a bit of knitting, got a hat.

The natural light shows off the color variations better, but the flash photo looks closer to real life (at least to my eye.)

I didn’t really know what to expect from the fiber in the first place, but I like the way the colors have become subtle under spinning and plying.

Woa, that’s gorgeous. I love how the colours have blended.

Thanks! I just wish I were better at looking at the fiber and knowing what the yarn will look like, what the finished object will look like.

Lovely spinning and knitting. What brand of fiber is that?

It’s from shunklies on etsy. She calls it “Jacob Humbug”, which I take to mean is all Jacob wool, blended in a humbug fashion.

Seriously beautiful. The thing I hate about the internet is that I can’t TOUCH anything.
