I got to devote Thursday almost entirely to spinning! I spun most of the purple mohair/wool fiber in the morning, then spent the afternoon with my lovely spinning teacher/friend trying out some new fibers and went to a spinning night at a local yarn store! (And I bought more yarn. :p )
I think it’s pretty…. I’m still deciding whether to ply it, but if I do, I’ll probably use a different yarn to get as much length as possible. Perhaps a dark violet? Although I’ve been meaning to try something lacy, so it might just stay as is. It’s definitely thin enough for something complex.
Clearly, I still have a little to finish spinning, so I’ll probably finish that on Monday. Again, it’s from Yarns, Etc in Chapel Hill, NC and I definitely recommend it. I’ll probably try to visit the boyfriend at school this summer and get some more. :p
Oh! And my yarn purchases:
The red is Cascade 220’s Soft Spun and the blues are their Pure Alpaca. Best part? Only $22 for all three! (Regular price would be about $40) The store, Close Knits, is closing at the end of this month and having a huge sale until everything’s gone, so if you’re in the Gastonia, NC area… I only wish I’d heard of them before than this week… *sigh*
