Meant to do this yesterday.... Whoops!

A wool mohair blend. One strand was a Frazzle Batt, and the other was some weird roving I had that was some kind of wool and mohair. It was nightmarish to spin, where the Frazzle Batt was lovely. Together they make an okay yarn.


And while adventuring in BC in May I found a wool shop (how can one not source out some fibre from the place you visit?) and this Polwarth top screamed out to me.  BUY ME! so I did LOL I made it this little single. Probably a fingering weight.



That's about it for skiens of epic proportion.. I've got a few samples of cotton, but they aren't set (I plan on doing that in one batch) I've got 3 more cotton samples to spin before I set them though.

What have you been spinning?

Oh belladune. Lovely! I love how honest you are about your own creations. They might just be an OK yarn, but they can make something super lovely. And those blues and greens are super! So bold!

I have some to share from my adventure in this scarf I've been commissioned to make, but I need to take pictures of my fat yarn cakes. They are so rad. I was crocheting at the market today and my fingers are so sore!
