Handspun Friday - FCK Mixed Blessing March 2011 - Blues

God, time is running away. It feels like the days are going by faster, and faster. For today we have some Polwarth fiber/yarn. It's a cross between 3/4 Merino sheep, and 1/4 Lincoln. I like it much better than pure Merino, because it's quite soft, but has better durability. It's lovely to spin as well.
This is half of FatCatKnits Mixed Blessing Fiber Club March 2011 - the Blues. I'm working on the other half right now.

FCK MB Fiber Club # 3-March 2011-5oz Polwarth-blueish

fiber: Polwarth
yarn: ~ 280yds, 3-ply, 5oz

The more real color is that of the darker side in the picture. You've seen it before in the handspun yarn during March photo.
Now I'm working on the purple half of this club fiber. We'll see how that turns out. I'm hoping to get it the same weight.

We wish you all a lovely Spring weekend:

I wish my pups could actually talk! Or- if not that, I wish I could read their minds. What fun!

I think you read their minds just fine. I can usually say what the dogs would if they could speak. We get to know their body language and personalities pretty well when we live with them.

Pretty, pretty spinning, as usual.

LOL! Wilbur loves to stand in front of the furniture like that and chew on a bone or eat a treat. It's like he's at the "snack bar".

Happy Spring - I think it's here at last!

Maggie looks so big in that photos. She's growing up fast. I haven't spun any of my FCK from this club yet but I love those blues.

Hilarious! I need to do this with my horse photos, it's just tough to catch them in action. Usually they just stand around looking at me. ;)

Beautiful spinning and interesting to know about the merino combined with the Lincoln makes an even better yarn!

Those are all fantastic photos of the pups ~ and perhaps it's best we don't know what Denny is thinking ;)
