I put the question mark there because I haven’t spun much at all. Remember the Fleece to Fair Isle? If you do, then you’re one step ahead of me. I have that one poor skein. And I did chart out the pattern for the main part of the sweater. Which has vague similarities to this. I say vague because mine is going to have skulls. Not like you couldn’t have figured that one out. So that’s where that stands. I’m bored with grey and I keep getting pretty colored fibers in the mail.
I belong to Hello Yarn’s club and this was the last one:
Lantern Festival Corriedale. I did a 2 ply. For half of a second I thought of predrafting it all in one piece so there were long color separations but I love the mix of colors. I decided to strip and predraft and I have this fun bright mixed up yarn. I’m not sure what it’s destined to be. It’s DK-worsted and possibly will be a sweater yoke at some point.
I also belong to Abby’s fiber batt club:
I know I haven’t spun them yet. I can’t decide HOW I want to spin them. Well, the blues are going to be for my Mom so I suppose I should wait to find out how she wants me to spin them. The tan just arrived and I would have done it if I hadn’t been on to trying out the Heathers I’ve been producing:
Have you ever been so giddy and silly about a fiber that you start spinning without thinking. And you continue spinning feeling all giddy about the fiber and the color and the texture and the feel and the colors and and and….. And you end up with something that is underspun or overspun. Yeah, well, that’s where I am with this one. It’s a tad underspun and certainly not even. But it is pretty just the same:
I keep looking at the Reid Sweater that Amy finished and thinking a heathered yarn for the Baby Boogie would be really nice in that sweater.
Luckily that is my excuse to get another batt. Yes I know I can add more twist. Like I said, this is my excuse to buy another batt from myself. I just don’t know which colorway. These are a few that I’ve been working on:
You can’t see the heatherness in them all but they are all a nice varied heather color. Of course there are more to come.
