This is this week's additions, minus one, which is still on the bobbin. Plied it tonight!
|Awool alpaca mohair silk yarn, blue and green, 55g|
The silk is from hankies from Lone Tree Wools, the alpaca I bought at a Black Sheep guild sale, and the wool/mohair blend that is the third ply came from a Spinner's Flock sale.
|wool, silk, alpaca - 50g|
The grey alpaca came from Spinning Loft, the wool was drum carded by me, and then made into psuedo rolags, the silk is the same as above. I should have taken a picture of the batt, it was pretty! It's light blue and lavender, with hints of other things.
|raspberry, orange, and yellow wool yarn, 75g, self striping|
All this came from Spinner's Flock. I blended an orange roving with peach, and yellow rovings, with hints of pink for the second ply (on the drum carder!), but the raspberry I ran with without altering. It's a wonderful color!
The best and perhaps most troublesome aspect of the spinning guild is that people are there every meeting trying to sell you gorgeous roving. I swore off buying yarn and fabric, but I couldn't bring myself to forbid the purchase of the occasional roving. I mean, I can avoid the temptations of yarn and fabric, mostly, but roving is always around. And I know will power is not my strong suit....
On the topic of resolutions, I did mean to do some wool dyeing this month, but it didn't happen... And until I clean up my crafting space, it probably won't. That should be my goal for May, seriously. Order, organization!
