I have spun and plied my first yarn. I purchased 1/4 oz of Alpaca/angel hair/Merino dyed in Kool-Aid from Tamara of Via Verde Farm while attending the Quilt/Fiber Expo at the Coopersville Farm Museum back in the summertime. I chose the fiber because it was pink and sparkly. It was my first ever fiber for spinning purchase. I used it to make this pretty yarn with my new Ashford Turkish Spindle..
I did finish my red socks last weekend and wore them one day this week. They are comfy and toasty. I do like the pattern in a more solid color though.
I've been busy moving office again at work. Just about settled, gotta move the computer and I'll be ready to rock. Ahh, gotta love a change of scenery.
There is a new scarf on a pair of gigantic needles...and I really mean gigantic. These are size 17.
Crystal Palace Yarns, Taos, color #18. The scarf pattern is Keyhole Scarf by Kim Hamlin.
Tomorrow is open house at Yarn Hollow. You should join us, it'll be fun!
