Wacky? Spontaneous? Distracted? Easily amused? These are some things I have in common with these yarns I spun this month. Above are three kinds of moss greens in merino left over from plying projects. I plied them with some of the eternal (read huge) bump of corriedale/merino morrit-colored roving I bought at Kid N Ewe last November. This stuff just won't go away. I have dyed it as roving and now am spinning it uber finely to use in these crazy projects.
Below is the wackiest.
I took the huge bag of detritus left from the licker-in of my Fancy Kitty Carder and started just spinning it as it came from the bag. I reached down and grabbed a fluff, so it is all kinds of thing; merino, alpaca, silk noil bits, silk, BFL, random wools, and bits of sparkle from angelina and Firestar. I have 3 big skeins of this stuff, or 396 yards of chunky, funky yarn. I'm thinking funny hats this winter.
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
