After the baby alpaca/silk finished drying, I reskeined it and took another picture. Because it’s so pretty and you couldn’t possibly be tired of looking at it yet.
I also finished working on Emeralds and Pearls, all 5.8 ounces of it. Corriedale, merino, silk . . . yum. It came out to about 414 yards after I 2-plied it. It hasn’t finished drying yet, so here it is with its ties on. I need to reskein it before I put it away in the yarn closet.
Yes. A pound.
1. I have one spindle! I will spin EVERYTHING.
2. I should buy three pounds of fiber. One pound of this color, one pound of this color, one pound of this color. . . .
3. I have now purchased three pounds of fiber. I want to buy more. Smaller batches because these one-pound batches of the same color will take a lot of time to spin and I have the attention span of a ferret.
4. Mooooar spindles! And fiber!
5. Maybe I should spin those big batches of fiber on a wheel whenever I get one.
6. Four years later: Hmm. I guess I could spin that last big batch of fiber. I still have swoony petpetpet feelings about the colors.
I haven’t decided whether I’m going to 2 or 3-ply it. I might just see how many bobbins I fill up before I decide.
