IT'S FRIDAY! SHOW ME YOUR GOODIES! What? You've been too busy with Christmas?! Bah, so have I but I was inspired so I made some yarn and I have more on the wheel because for that I was REALLY inspired. I got a bug and when I get it it won't let go until I give it what it wants. So here we go:
I attempted corespun this week, y'all! I probably did it wrong because I didn't really watch any videos or try to learn much about it first, though I have before so that should be good enough. It's kind of slubby but just wait for the next yarn. This is the other half of the batt that I showed you spun up with some wool last week, except this time I used that same wool as the core.
It should be more white but apparently the grave I got my fiber from kind of lied about the colorfastness of this next fiber so it's not and I'm mad. Also what I didn't like about this next fiber is that while it was really interesting batt and only Merino and Angelina, there were some really thick short parts of it and it made it really difficult to spin evenly so I said F*** it and made it really thick and thin corespun. I really like it but again, I liked it better before I set the twist and the colors bled. Curse you Katie McMullin!
Sorry for the 2 pics but the true coloring is somewhere between those 2.
I do have another hank of 35 yards already but I am working on more of the same so I'll post it all at the same time, next week! I am so excited! This is the real bug that bit me and man, I am really liking it.
