Just in Case You Were Wondering

I mentioned yesterday that I whipped the Oblique sleeves into shape by making them watch me spin. This is what I spun. It started as 3.7 ounces of a Spontaneous Spinning Batt from Loop. It was named (in possibly the understatement of the year) "Pink." This thing is pink like space is big. Not only does it have wool, silk, kid mohair, sari silk, alpaca, and Angelina (oh boy, does it have Angelina - there are places in the singles that are JUST Angelina), it has hot pink, red, purple, soft pink, coral pink, mauve pink, and every other kind of pink or pink relative there is.

I spun it into a two ply sportweight and I got 261 yards when it was all finished. I'm thinking about making it into the scarf they show in the new Spin Off done 10 different ways. (I can't remember the name of the scarf, Spin Off is upstairs, the computer is downstairs, I'm lazy, but the pattern is by Heartstrings.) I think that would show off the colors the best and while I'll have to Elvis the collar of whatever jacket I wear with it (some of the Angelina is almost tinsel sized and it's not as soft as I'd want against my neck), I think it would look great in that pattern.

Are you thinking of the Morning Surf pattern? I think your pink yarn will be very pretty in that scarf.

Wow, the pinkness woke me up! Looks terrific. Do I see some beads in there too? It will be perfect for the Morning Surf Scarf.

What is "Angelina?" Never heard of it but it sounds interesting. Lovely color. Makes me want to get spinning but I have to wait until Thursday - we have demos, then and I have to get the wheel packed up.
