The first of these skeins Kathrows and I dyed at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival. I spun this to be one long progressive colorway by splitting the roving in half, spinning the singles in the same color progression, then plying them together. Of course they weren't the same length, so there's considerable mixing of colors, but that's all to the good. Wow, that's some pastel, hey?
MY FIRST YARN
So Abiknits posted her first skein. I take up the challenge! Here's my very first yarn. It's not in a skein because about two months ago I was going to start actually knitting it so I wound it up. As you can see, not so much action there. Luckily, the frightening fug is still visible in ball form. The ball on the left was my first bobbin. The ball on my right was my second and third, plied for "better consistency." Yeah, right. I am fond of its fugly self, though. I really do think the blue was the perfect calming color for a dope who bought a spinning wheel sight unseen and proceeded to teach herself out of books.
Today I have free to knit and spin, watch last season's LOST on dvd and do a little laundry. Sometimes life is good.
