Before and after dolly mix

Recently I bought some hand spun and hand dyed merino wool on Etsy from Sheepish Sarah.

I knit the whole thing into a triangular scarf.

I'm wearing it right now.

The joy of knitting with this kind of yarn is the surprise of how the colours will show themselves.

Here's a before and after shot.

The colour is called Dolly Mixture and it really does look like one of those little jars of tiny boiled lollies, called dolly mix.  I wonder why?  Is it because they are lollies for your dolly?  Dolly lollies.

Well I do know that this scarf is delicious.


  1. Yum! Thanks for showing the before and after. It's always fun to see how a yarn like that will turn out.

  2. You're welcome! It's lovely and soft too.
