I just snapped a few pictures before my camera battery died and it turns out all but one of the pics I took were out of focus.
(I used a flash with this one. I don’t know why I listen to Eric when he tells me not to use flash. It seems to work better with it)
Do you wonder what it is?
It is my handspun yarn!. A bulky weight 2 ply Targhee wool yarn in a lovely off-white which was spun on my Fricke e-spinner. I got 2 pounds of this fiber free with my e-spinner and this was only the first eight ounces of it. I was truly surprised at how much it fluffed up after washing to set the twist. It’s about 300 yards. I have this handpainted targhee wool fiber from SpinningBunny.com in Tamarak and Spruce colorway which I’m going to spin up fairly soon to make a top down yoke sweater. It will make a great fall sweater.
When I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival last week, I picked up some fiber . Most of that you’ll see in the podcast. However, I got this beautiful soysilk from Serendipity Farm and Studio which I think I’m going to try and spin up next. I want to experiment with trying different fibers before trying to push myself into creating a knitted project with my yarns.
Isn’t this color just beautiful! 8 ounces should make a lovely shawl or wrap.
