I talk about a lot of things here but rarely show you finished yarns so here are a few that I've spun over the last couple of weeks. The orange is Cormo that Janel Laidman gave me. I love Cormo. I got 4 ounces and spun it all up on one bobbin of my Louet S45. After the spinnign was finished I wondered what to do. Ply it with something else? Try to separate it into 2? The lazy took over and I chain plyed it all onto one bobbin of my Jensen TinaII.
I love this yarn and now need to figure out what to make with it. It is about a fingering weight yarn which will probably be something lace.
I have a stockpile of Abby Batts and when Abby was here after the reorganizing and she saw how many batts I have she scolded me for not spinning them. So I've spun one. Big plans for more spinning of Abby Batts in the near future. This yarn was spun on my Schacht Matchless and plyed on a spindle from a center pull ball. It is about a DK weight.
And when I was in Wisconsin I visited Susan's Fiber shop and bought this fiber which is a Merino/Mohair blend. I've lost the tag and so have no idea who did the dyeing. it was very felted and not a joy to spin. This 4 ounce bit was also spun onto all the same bobbin and so the final yarn is chain plyed. I do like the finished yarn a lot...but neglected to take a photo of it.
So there you have it. I really do spin.
