Don't ever let anyone tell you the transition to retirement is difficult. I now get to focus on the things I enjoy and never feel as though I'm jamming everything into a limited day.
Yarn ReviewOne of my greatest joys is testing out new yarn offerings from some of the independent dyers out there.
Jonathan from MJ Yarns has asked me to test and review two new yarns that are exclusively being sold on his web site. His other great offerings (which I've reviewed in the past) are available at various retail yarn stores. Here is my evaluation of both his two new yarns, One Ewe and Tough Ram.
Both of the yarns are fingering weight, superwash merino wool, put up in 100 gram hanks. One Ewe is a single-ply fingering weight yarn (380 yards) produced in the UK (dyed by MJ Yarns here in the U.S.) and Tough Ram is a heavy 4-ply sock yarn (360 yards) produced and dyed in the U.S.
Both yarns are either dyed as a semi-solid color or kettle-dyed for a more varied tonal look.
