Loganberry Yarn


I plyed the Loganberry yarn and I just love it! There are about 550 yards of it which might be enough for 2 pairs of socks, or one pair of socks and one something else. The mohair adds just a little sheen to the yarn without making it obnoxious. Its one of the fluffiest yarns I've ever spun. There were some places in the roving that didn't want to draft evenly so its slightly thick and thin, but I still think it will make beautiful socks. I took this picture before I washed the yarn and now, after washing it, it has fluffed up and the mohair has bloomed a little and its even prettier.

I started spinning some Falkland top from Copper Moose, that I got in a trade. I have enough for a sweater so I'm going to spin it all at once, so I can hopefully keep it the same general size from beginning to end. I will fill all 6 of my regular bobbins with singles before I start plying it onto my plying bobbin. I think I'll just do a 2 ply, but I'll have to see how it looks, I might go for a 3 ply if I feel like I need a larger yarn. Right now it just looks like white singles, so no picture of it today.

The wedding on Saturday was wonderful and everything went smoothly. Mickael and I had a lot of fun. He even danced with me! (Awww, isn't he sweet?) Thanks for all the complements on the dress, I forgot to mention, the linen fabric was a gift from my Mother in Law, Carole, ages ago. I'm sure she thought I'd forgotten all about it and would never use it. I still have enough of the green to make a skirt or something and I've got this wonderful natural colored window pane/openweave gigantic check thing (can you tell I'm not a weaver) that I can do something with. Anyway, because she had bought the fabric, and I spun the yarn for my wrap, the shoes were the only thing I had to buy to complete the outfit. I may need to get some more yarn or fiber to celebrate that one!
