You’d think all I do is make yarn

I do actually leave the house each day, I promise!  It’s just that I’ve only wanted to make yarn lately, craft-wise that is, so that’s what I’ve been doing.  Here are some pics of my latest sweater spin.  1100 yards of aran weight merino/silk blended from 5 different braids of fiber.

Some fibery endeavors

I’ve been spinning away like crazy lately, here are some of my latest darlings.

This first skein is about 700 yards of worsted weight yarn.  It is one ply of SCF polwarth from a club offering, and the 2nd ply is mixed from all my leftover ends.  Looks like a lot of blues and earth tones which went really well with the SCF.

This next pic is a large 640 yard skein of fingering weight polwarth navajo plied.  The smaller skein is 160 yards of 2ply fingering weight.  Great colors from BMFA.BMFA Nply

This pic is about 1400 yards of a worsted/aran undyed merino.  Very squishy and I can’t wait to knit this one up!

And this last pic is something I did for my friend Nikki.  It is about 560 yards of 3ply merino, fingering weight for some socks.

I’ve also done some weaving lately but spinning is mostly where it’s at for me right now.  Hope you’re having a crafty summer!
