I have been feeling the busy fever. It could just be the stress of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas though. In the meantime I have been taking some time to spin.
I finished spinning two skeins of yarns. The First yarn finished was this one:
It is an ambiguous mix of Cormo from when Sue Reuser had sheep, Silk, and fine Suri Alpaca. As you can see it is very "rustic" I did not do any real prep and just threw it all into a drum carder. It is very soft and not very consistent. As you can see it also has some vegetation still in it too. Lol. I do not know what it is going to be. Just one of those experiments of carding up the three fibers. I have about 450 yards and its DK weightish. I swear I just spin whatever the fiber is telling me and hardly ever go for a certain weight. (I need to work on that!) The second skein:
This is combed top from HedgehogFibres! It is super soft merino and I love it. I got got about 300ish yards so its about DK weight. I have no idea what I am going to do with it but it sure is lovely and soft! I wish they offered more fibers, but then again I have enough fiber to spin for right now (like that would stop me though from buying more). I just spun this in strips so it is more consistent.
I am planning another DK update hopefully this week if I can get my act together. It is hard to concentrate sometimes on getting work done when there is so much other work (leaf blowing etc) that needs to get done!
