Last time, I gave you a little peek into my fabric stash. This time, I'd like to show you part of my fiber stash. There's some hand-dyed mohair/merino roving (see below), a nice hefty Corriedale, an undyed merino roving, some baby alpaca, and several plant fibers. I think the plant fibers are soy, bamboo, and corn, if I remember correctly. I've only spun animal fibers so far... I'm a bit nervous about diving into the plant fibers. Any advice on which ones to start with?
This is the beautiful hand-dyed mohair/merino blend spun up into singles. I'm not sure how I'm going to ply it. It was a gift from my SP8, Rosi G. This fiber spun up so beautifully. I think I have two ounces there -- hopefully enough to make a pair of my Ragamittens.
Only two more days until the weekend. The phrase, "working for the weekend" has really hit home for me lately. It's been pretty crazy at my "real job," and classes are ramping up again at the yarn store which means I'll be teaching more. I love teaching classes, but when I teach classes during the week it ends up being a 13 hour day which gets to be really l-o-o-o-o-o-ng! So I'm off to bed now -- sweet dreams!
