Quickly finished up this yarn so I could move on to the new stuff I bought at the Spinning Loft a couple weeks ago. The blue is a blend of Suri Alpaca, Merino, Silk that I dyed in various shades of blue and some silver Angelina for bling, plied with a brushed mohair that was dyed in subtle shades of white, cream and tan. Love how this turned out.....all soft and fuzzy.
Then I decided to start with this combo from my road trip.......
on left, is a BFL/Silk blend. It was awesome to spin.....might be my new favorite fiber! The Chartreuse is a 50/50 blend of Merino/Silk. Did not enjoy spinning this as much as the BFL.....I think too much silk in the mixture for me.
Mmmmmmm, love how the Autumn spun up. Plied the two together
Meeting with the girls tomorrow at Your Local Yarn Shop for another day of spinning fun. Haven't made up my mind which color/fiber combo I'll spin next. I'm thinking I'll just take it all and ask for some ideas.
Completed my Arroway shawl.....yup another Stephen West design. It was a pretty quick project since it's mostly done in garter. Hit a snag when I got to the arrows at the bottom but after a chat with KellyJ even that moved along nicely. Now to just get it blocked!
I made this scarf as a store sample for the Spectra class I will be teaching at YLYS next Saturday.
It was super fun to make and hard to put down cause I wanted to see what the next color would look like. It's made with Noro Kureyon sock and Heritage sock yarns. It was such fun I thought I should have one for myself. Started mine yesterday while visiting my Dad....
........can't wait to get to the teals and purples!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Fiber Arts Friday!!
