Dyer's Notebook Podcast Group Swap

This was my last attempt to do a swap, I have been burned too many times on these and this was my last ditch effort. Luckily it turned out wonderful!

Here is what I sent out:

The yarn is fingering weight 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. It's self-striping, 4 rows pink, 6-8 rows variegated pink, white, purple, and black, 4 rows purple, and then 6-8 rows variegated pink, white, purple, and black.

The fiber is just some small bundles of random wool, they were dyed in some of the remainder of the dye from the yarn.

She sent a second skein of Rainbow inspired yarn, 70% Superwash BFL, 20% Silk, and 10% Cashmere.  I'm thinking a hat or part of a shawl.

I am making some Lazy Cable Fingerless Mitts for one of my niece's for Christmas.  Not using a pattern, just figuring it out as I go.  Had to do some ripping back a couple times, but overall I think it is going well.  Knit on US 1.
