Future Spinning


Since I'm not allowing myself to start anything new until I finish up the Swan Lake pattern*, I thought I'd show you some things that are waiting patiently in my stash to be spun. Above you can see 3 different batts/tops. From the left is Mojito Love: an Original Kitchen Sink Batt from Kary of the Knotty Sheep - now on Ebay AND Etsy (be careful, there are other people using the Kitchen Sink Batt name who didn't come up with the original concept and don't have the color and fiber sense Kary brings to her product), at the top is Love in a Mist from Delia of The Fiber Denn (also available on Ebay and Etsy), and finally, on the right is some merino top I picked up at MDS&W in Ice Blue from Ohio Valley Natural Fibers. I didn't buy these fibers to go together, but this range of colors looks good on me and I like them so I kind of ended up with a collection. When I put them all together I realized that they worked together nicely, so I'm going to spin them into a 3 ply yarn, using one color for each ply. I think it will make a very interesting yarn and if I use it this way, I'll have enough fiber for a sweater's worth of yarn!

*For those of you on Swan Lake watch, I'm definitely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now. My son has been home sick from school yesterday and today so my actual computer time has been cut way down over the last couple of days, but it will be available very, very soon. Hang in there.

Very lovely! I never would have thought to make that into a 3-ply... that's a very cool idea! I'm also looking forward to seeing the yarn develop.
