Well, since I started to wind up the Pendragon yarn for my Sunset Scarf, I ended up having too much fun, and so I took out all the other hanks to wind up into balls.
This is Cascade Casablanca. I wound up the first hank I pulled up by hand, and got tired. It was a lot of yarn!
So I took out the manual (again) winder to wind up the other two hanks. It wasn’t too bad; although there was too much yarn and it wouldn’t stay on the winder, so I just took it off and wound the remaining yards around the ball.
As I looked at the balls, I remembered that the Casablanca Poppy was so similar to yarn that I had before. The Cascade Casablanca Poppy shades are a little deeper and darker, but they seem to be the same colour palette. hmmmm … my eyes or my brains certainly pick out the same or similar colours, don’t they?
And so I kept on spinning, pulling out those hanks of yarn that I had purchased but didn’t have time to wind up before I went travelling last year. There’s more hanks to wind up, but I can start with these.
Now I can start looking for patterns to go with these yarns, maybe try some new stitches …
