FIBER FRIDAY! In the you don't know what you got til it's gone department, I have some yarn to show off today.
There was very little spinning in the last six weeks. I confess. But look at this stuff here.
Stats: 138 yards, 5.4 oz. Thick, thin, but mostly bulky. Single ply with a lot of texture.
Blend of merino, targhee, rambouillet, cotswold, mohair, recycled sari silk, nylon, firestar and angelina sparkle.
I started with a big paper bag (a basket would be more romantic but I believe in honesty) I rummaged through the plastic bins I store fiber in. (a cedar chest, in my dreams) I grabbed handfuls of fiber I wanted to use and tossed it all in the bag.
I sat down to spin and reached in the bag and spun whatever I had in my hand. This worked well for me since I always try to control everything too much. (talking about the yarn, people) And I accidently make self-striping yarn too often.
This fall I think I'm into asymmetry, odd numbers, randomness, unexpected scale and... staying up late.
I don't own the yarn anymore, but I hope it turns into something interesting.
