190yds South African Fine, 3.5oz, navajo plied, once again I was going for a little thicker yarn.
I'm almost done with spinning all the fiber I've dyed back in April. I needed to take a break from the color orange, so I'm spinning "Mist" lilac/purple merino/bamboo for the moment, before I go back to finish off the last of South African Fine.
This merino/bamboo needs to be spun fine, and fast (whorl). It's very slippery, and feels like butter in your/my hands. It's the best time to dye fiber or yarn right now. I'm really tempted, but I think I'll keep my natural fiber just that for the moment. I think I have enough dyed fiber in my stash to last me until next summer. I'll work on that, which is quite sensible of me, don't you think? :o)
There's some drama developing in our garden, of which I will report about soon. I'm hoping to get at least ONE picture to tell the tale. :o)
