It happened last weekend: lovely local llama spun up with some wool. And then I dyed it this green-turquoise colour. My dye-mixing technique definitely needs some fine-tuning – despite my careful calculations, this wasn’t actually the colour I was hoping for. Still, it may be wearable in small doses.

In my daydreams, I will knit this into plum gloves for next winter, since the arrival of real plum blossoms in Vancouver means it’s finally getting warmer.
