Like I said, I’ve been spinning…
700+ yards of three ply – Superwash Panda Fiber Sock Batts from The Cupcake Fiber Company. I bought these in March 2011, can’t believe I waited so long to spin it!
400+ yards of chain plied Villain, March’s Hello Yarn Club fiber. This is also a blend of superwash merino, bamboo and nylon. These will be some awesome socks!
250ish yards of mystery wool with sari silk bits – no idea what this will be!
I don’t remember the yardage on this but I had 8 oz. of it, I think it was around 700. Another Hello Yarn Fiber Club offering – Broken Things on Falkland wool. One of these days I’ll knit up a crazy blanket with all my multi-colored handspun. I certainly have enough of it.
Just to cleanse the pallet, here’s a picture of the boy practicing his guitar! He’s going to be a junior this year. I am dumbfounded.
Yet another Hello Yarn Fiber Club offering – Splendid on Romney. This just wanted to be singles, although I hardly ever spin singles. The staple length was really long, I think it’ll be lovely in something lacy.
And this is what I’m spinning now – Pate de Fruit on Rambouillet. I’ve never spun Rambouillet before – it’s similar to merino I think, very bouncy and poofy.
Honestly, I’ll be happy when this spin is finished. I think I might be all spun out. I’ve reached that stage that seems to come at the end of every season – I don’t want to work on any current projects. I’m bored with it all. But since so much of my yarn is in storage (and I haven’t missed it! Shocker!), finishing up current projects is pretty much my only option. Which is probably a good thing, but nothing to get excited over!
