This is third in a series intended to show the steps from fiber to finished item. You can click on following the fiber under categories to see them all.
The fiber: handpainted blue-faced leicester top in a colorway called “blush” including pinks, peaches and a bit of yellow with some natural white showing through. I received this in a trade so I don’t know who did the handpainting.
the plies: three singles on the bobbins ready to be spun into yarn
the yarn: three-plied sport weight yarn, about 110 yards
the project: spiral legwarmers inspired by Spiral Bedsocks, a free pattern from Vintage Purls. Full project details on Ravelry.
These legwarmers were actually done last month but it took this long to get the girl to pose for a picture. Now I have about fourteen of course. That’s first position there, in case you’ve forgotten your ballet steps.
