It's like, 4 am, and I can't sleep thanks to choosing the wrong cold meds before bed... So, what better thing to do than cruise craftster, and post something?  I can't believe it's been what feels like forever since I've posted...

Okay, so first, this gorgeous oatmeal BFL, I haven't actually measured it out, but I know it's got to be over 600yards, because it was 4 bobbins worth of singles. maybe a light sport weight?


This is a 50/50 blend of merino and baby llama! I took a series of progress pics, because I was really enjoying the process of this spin...




That's it for now. There's more, but I guess they've not been loaded onto my computer...

Thanks for looking!

The first one is gorgeous, but I absolutely love the colors on that second one. And so much yarn indeed! It's all beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

Thank you!  And to think... The pics not loaded onto my computer could have made it a whole lot more!

You, ma'am, are a machine. Very pretty! Do you plan to dye those?

Yup. I managed those ones in a month...   They are for my In Depth Study for the Master Spinner program. I'm having a better look at ply structure and what it does to fibre characteristics and suitability of end use.

You make me long for the days long past where I could do this kind of shtuff regularly. You still amaze me, dear. Always will I'm sure.
