I bought this fiber in 2010. I had to go looking in my files for a photo of the braid. I'm just glad there's some kind of order in my files, or I would have never found it, since I didn't even know what year I bought it.
Here it is: Noah dyed by FatCatKnits, a Merino/Bamboo blend, 8oz.
I've spun it earlier this year. I've seen others felt Merino/Bamboo blend handspun yarns on purpose, so this was my experiment. I wanted it to look "frosted".
Here's a photo of the yarn before I handled it roughly in hot/cold soapy water. It's all smooth and shiny.
Then I put some muscle into it, and agitated it for a long time, until I saw the bamboo coming to the surface.
I've got two skeins, a total of 266yds, 2-ply.
Now I've that out of my system. It's squishy yarn, great for a hat I think.
And of course there's a glimpse into Denny's attachment to me. When I'm sitting at my desk, he's often sleeping very close. I have to be careful not to hurt him. I've heard saying, that an umbilical coard would be too long for him and me.
Oh, and that's Maggie there too. She sometimes wants to be close to me too.
I'm wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
