strawberry wine


& i fell in
the strawberry vines
into a pool of strawberry wine
(ryan adams, "strawberry wine")

100% blue-faced leicester, 94 grams & 190 yards, colourway "strawberry wine". roughly a heavy fingering weight, which is slightly thicker than i was aiming for, but that's the fun of handspun! again, this will be going to the k1 yarns shop in glasgow probably next week sometime, but if you desperately want it let me know...
it's all about strawberries here at the moment - clearly, i'm longing for summer. or maybe just strawberries.
(oh, & in response to india's question on the last post, i dyed the fibre myself, using a secret recipe that i can never reveal.)*

*ok, it was a combination of grape & black cherry koolaid.

Lilith, What a gorgeous color!!! I love it. What would it take to persuade you to send it to the States. Would it be with my budget?
