I mostly lurk here, but love looking at what everyone does. After hanging around here, I realized that I would rather be spinning a more "novelty" type yarn, so you all have inspired me. Here are some yarns I have spun lately in preparation for our county fair:
Jacob's Ladder, natural black and white jacob sheep wool carded together with blue and coral ingeo. One ply thick and thin, one ply sort of light DK weight, plyed with black thread. This is from my own flock of sheep.
Ba-Ba Black Sheep (what I say to the sheep now that shearing time is here again!) Natural black shetland/jacob cross carded with iridescent firestar that looks mostly pink. Two plys thick and thin, plyed with black thread with pink sequins. My first add-ins!
Sparkling Water. Unknown wool bought when I first started spinning. Has some shiny stuff carded in. Two thick/thin plys, plyed with an iridescent white thread. My first attempt at a "novelty-style" yarn.
Thanks for all the inspiration I find here. My next step is dyeing- I have plenty of white wool to experiment on.
