This is 2-ply, 193.5 yds, both skeins together. I tried to spin thick, really, really thick, and thought I'll be needing at least 8mm needles to knit this stuff, but once plied, it might be called chunky, or heavy worsted. I have to check the WPI, but it's thick and thin spun, thanks to the mohair/wool blend, which was a PIA to draft and spin. It had lots of dried veggies in it, could have fed a bunny with it. I do not blame the fiber, or even Amy for providing this colorway, it's not her fault, that I didn't understand until it was too late, because after I finished this yarn, I read the little label, which comes with the fiber, it said: Think Spring!
" The grey skies are parting for the pink sunrises and the brighter yellow days of spring. Can you feel it coming?" AmyThat very evening I let the dogs outside when the sun was almost down. The sky was pink, yellowish, grey, and white, just like the fiber. I appreciated too late. When nature can produce such lovely colors, and I loved seeing it, why didn't I like the dyed fiber?
Anyway, Maggie did the best you could possibly do with this fiber, have a look!
It blew me away. Doesn't her yarn look a little like clouds, and it also reminds me of colored Easter eggs.
It has been a few days now, and I've settled down. It IS yarn I produced, and it will be knit eventually. I want to be more careful in the future, and try to think a little before I get to work.
This was my last fiber from a fiber club. I'm officially Fiber Club free. I still have to spin the last installment of Electric Sheep Fiber from February:
Don't know what I'll do with that one. Amy (another one) had this lovely picture as her inspiration. I don't want to blow it this time.
