All I did yesterday, was spinning, no knitting or any other fibery thing, 10 oz to be exact. Not this yarn though. This yarn was made with FatCatKnits merino in the colorway "Cobblestone" combined with one ply Dyed in the Wool Handmade "Silver Dollar" (I've about 1 oz of this fiber left). I've had "Cobblestone" in my fiber stash for so long, I forgot to take a picture of the fiber itself. It looked lovely, and as always so very different from the finished product. I like how this 3-ply turned out. I think its colores are very "manly"; my son liked it, and he usually isn't saying anything about my yarn. He especially liked the burned orange/silver grey parts, and so did I.
In the picture below you can see a small skein. I made some 2-ply (38yds) with the remaining "Cobblestone" singles, (don't know why I did not have enough of the "Silver Dollar", I weight it). I would not have liked it by itself, so I'm glad I decided to make the 3-ply.
fiber: FatCatKnits "Cobblestone" 100% merino, 4oz
Dyed in the Wool Handmade, "Silver Dollar", 100% superwash merino, 2oz (or so I thought)
yarn: 3-ply, 311yds, 12 WPI
destination: handpun stash
By the way, before I forget again, my daughter is on Ravelry too! You can find her under fipabella. :o)
Besides spinning, and all the other things I've accomplished I felt like I was really productive yesterday. I made some "Apfelstrudel" (Apple Strudel); it was delicious, but I can't seem to find the right flour for the dough, not like it really should be, but it was good nevertheless. I should take time to bake more often.
I was not the only one, tired at the end of the day. Sam took advantage of the free bed.
My camera has a hard time to focus in a dark room, that's why the picture is a bit blurry. But Sam is still cute. :o)
