Some time back I ordered this from ScoutJ in her "Prepster" colorway. Superwash Merino...4oz's worth that's been staring at me for some time. Every time I go into the fiber room it was always looking at me...
I tell ya...this is fun to spin! I can't wait to ply it...and of course I will be navajo plying it to keep the colors together as much as possible. It still needs to speak to me about what it wants to become, maybe once it's plyed?!
Here are the singles so far...
...pretty cool huh?
I'm so far behind on my blogging, things have happened and such that I needed to post...bear with me I'll get it all done.
I participated in the HHHH (Hush-Hush Handspun Hootenanny) Swap and received this GREAT package from Cary, I believe this will be the next fiber to spin!
She included a fiber sample from her corridale sheep, silk hankies, wool & soysilk roving --AWESOME colors!, sheeps milk soap she made from her flock…even a “fat free” cupcake (see the center of the photo) that fit right in Weight Watchers! A beautiful victorian looking needle case and a lavender sachet from her garden. Her handspun is gorgeous, it’s wool/alpaca/cashgora blend that I can’t wait to knit up...gee, what should I make? I'm thinking mittens?!
THANKS again Cary!! I love making new fiber friends!!
Do you think this is the face of someone who misses his Grandma? He needs a haircut...
He came to spend the weekend with us, we had the camper up getting it ready for camping, I think he wants to go camping too!!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
