I can't wait for next fiber friday to post this Cheesy

Also, I think it deserves its own post.

This is my first funky art yarn.  It's an equal mix of Cotswold curls and corriedale roving, with angelina thrown in to make it sparkle.

I found that in a couple spots, there was just not enough twist.  The problem with that is that I had been overspinning in other spots.  Guess that's what setting the twist is for?  Anyway, it drifted apart in a couple of places, but I fixed it with little knots.  In a chunky and fun art yarn, I don't think they matter. 

Anyway, here's Pumpkin Pie Spice:



It started out as this:



Hooray!
Oh, and here it is on the bobbin:

You're right.  It does deserve it's own thread!!

yesterday, I spun some grey yarn (combo of corriedale, merino & churro, all naturally grey), then knit it into a calorimetry. 

It's for a local Mennonite lady who loves the look of the calorimetry but dresses 'plain'.  I think the subtle different shades of the greys gave some interest to the FO.

Well, that gives me some hope for one of my latest dye batches. 

Do you have pictures of the FO?  Because we all love pictures Smiley
