I’ve had ‘peacock’ on the wheel for a while. I love, love, love this colorway, but it is a commercial roving that is just tricky for me to spin. It seems like the fiber all line up, so I’m breaking it every five inches. Super gorgeous, though, with a hint of copper. It’s all plied now and waiting for a bath. I’m not sure what I’m going to knit it into yet. A cowl is what I’m leaning towards.
Then there is this beauty. I joined Moon Rover’s fiber club and her dyed rovings are spectacular. I am going to do a single of the beautiful white alpaca blend The Gentleman got me for Christmas and ply it with a long colorway single of this beauty, and then a shawl for me. I made a Boneyard shawl from handspun a couple weeks ago, but it was really small so I hope that this 10 ounces spun up with be significantly more yardage. I’m sure it will be.
And, because the ‘kitten’ cat is a jerk and has been eating yarn and fiber (I kid you not), I am spinning this gorgeous roving out of the plastic bag it came in. I know! Terrible! But he literally started eating it while I was spinning it.
