Earlier this year, I decided to spin for another blanket, using FatCatKnits semi solid colorways. At the time there were a little over 50 colors, but Ginny continued to add more colors. In the end I stopped at 61 colors, while she has over 80 in her store now. They are all so beautiful!
Here's a picture of the big mother load I got first.
During this years Tour de Fleece, it was my goal to spin as many semi solids as possible during that time. I stuffed them into this plastic bin.
At that time I had 32 colorways left to spin, and managed to spin 19 during Tour de Fleece. Here are some pictures of finished yarn.
I filled a few bobbins, and plied them at one go, so that there were always a few done at a time. Like this:
With each batch I thought there was one which was my favorite, but I can't choose just one favorite. I like them all, and really love some of them.
Anyway, while the fiber took up space in 2 1/2 shelves, the finished yarn only needed one shelf to house all those little pretty skeins.
I do like this combo a lot though.
It's "Rust" and "Toasted Almond".
Each color is 2oz, chain plied, on Falkland.
I can't tell you how happy I am to be done with spinning them. I had an idea how I wanted to knit this blanket, but have dismissed this idea since then. Now I have to think some more, before I can cast on, but there is no hurry. I love looking at this shelf. I still have to add up the total yardage.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
