So, if you forgot (
) I name all of my skeins after birds! So go to the link of the bird name to see the corresponding bird. I've had some of these done since FEBRUARY at least, just waiting on me to name them. I need to get over that need to find the perfect bird match! Dumb OCD tendencies. Anyway, onward!Yellow-fronted Canary
This is navajo plied. I love it! There's not a ton of it but it's awful pretty. I sort of just wanted to name it "Confusing fall warblers
" but I didn't. Princess Parrot
So this basically only looks like the face of a Princess Parrot but c'mon. PRINCESS PARROT.
I love this little single! This is the first of my handspun that I tried to knit with. It knitted up fine but I didn't check the gauge and now I have one fingerless glove that MIGHT fit a small child.
I think I'm gonna put it in Stitch and Botch at some point. Pink-necked Green Pigeon
- meh. not sold on that name.
My first thick and thin single!
I'm amazed I did it actually.Long-tailed Silky-flycatcher
It could be argued that that bird is actually grey and green and not lilac and yellow... oh well.
There aren't exactly a lot of birds with this color in the world! Anyway.. it's just a simple two ply (I think, it's been a while!). Summer Tanager, first year male.
This is a pretty tiny skein that's SOOO hard to photgraph! It's so bright. I believe I navajo plied it.Mourning Warbler, female
This one is tiny but I'm really happy that I spun a pretty balanced single! I usually have to ply and even then they aren't as balanced as this one. Rufous Woodpecker
omg I'm so in love with this skein. It's so giant and fluffy and BALANCED. It's dying to be poppet hair. Too bad I've never made a poppet.
It's been hard to get an accurate photo of it. Maybe one day I'll put in a better one.
This is one of the only skeins I've ever done with a particular bird in mind. I was already spinning the Rufous Woodpecker and was looking up birds and found this one. As luck would have it I still had more of the rusty fiber left AND black and white. I spun a single of each rust and white and rust and black and then plied them. I <3 it.
I swear that's all I have for now.
Hopefully I'll update again in less than 8 months.
