Spinning stuff

So here’s what’s on the wheel…

Baggie of goodness from when we went on the yarn crawl in September!

Spins up into these lovely singles…

And then plied together it turns even more beautiful!!!!

I think I may use this for weaving to get maximum yardage out of it! This is about just over half of it, and I have around 450 yards, so I’m thinking out of the whole thing I’ll get 750-800 yards! Not too very shabby for $22!

And then here is the mystery brown fiber that I spun up just before the beautiful fiber, just to get into the feel of spinning again. Didn’t want to start out using the pretty stuff and making it too chunky just because I was out of practice!

I have enough left of this stuff to spin up a good 1500 yards total. It is sooooo totally going to be a shawl when I’m done with it! Soft and lovely! Could maybe be alpaca? I’m gonna have to dig back through my receipts to be sure.

And that is all, because I have a headband and some flowers to make today! The ideas are flowing in from people who have looked at my shop, and I and super happy to delve through patterns, and find wonderful new things to make!

      Yep, I just couldn’t walk away from that bag of goodness. It’s called Picasso and it looks pretty Picasso in the bag. On the wheel it morphed into a beautiful yarn! I wouldn’t call it Picasso now though. ๐Ÿ˜›
