Recent Spinning Projects...
Long time, no blog...
Happy May! I hope you're having a good month.
It would appear that I'm not doing any better at blogging regularly - I think I'll just have to settle for sporadic :)
Anyway, here are 3 yarns I've spun in the last several months.
Handspun Yarn I: Live Shrimp
Fiber: Creatively Dyed Milk Protein, Seacell, Wool Roving
Stats: 365 yards (114 g), ~15 wpi (fingering weight)
Handspun Yarn II: Four-color
Fiber: Merino Batt (I don't remember who I bought this from, but it was at Maryland Sheep & Wool last year)
Stats: 206 yards (114 g), 9-12 wpi (thick & thin worsted weight)
Ply: single ply
Handspun Yarn III: Turkish Delight
Fiber: Enchanted Knoll Farm Alpaca Silk Merino Batts & Purple Fleece Falkland Top
Stats: 744 yards (219 g), ~18 wpi (light fingering weight)
I'm actually making something with this yarn right now, so hopefully I'll have an update on it soon. As you can see, I had a bit of the Falkland singles left-over, so I plied them with one another. I'm not sure what to do with the mini-skein, but I'm sure it will be useful eventually :)
