Handspun Friday - Fuego
I've finished this yarn recently, made with Southern Cross Fibers Fiber Club January 2013 fiber - Fuego. It inspired a spinalong over on Ravelry in the SCF group. It's called Extreme Plying: The SAL, and you can use SCF fiber, Hello Yarn fiber, and Spunky Eclectic fiber to join the fun! There will be prizes as well! Entries must be 4-ply and up.
Here's the fiber: sw BFL, 110gr - Fuego
David of SCF called it "m-ply", and of course I like it. What I did is, I made a 2-ply and chain plied that too boot. I love how the colors blend well together. I'm already working on the second colorway Vista, to do the same with it, hoping it will turn out as great as this one. There's only 112yds of it, all that plying eats up the yardage, but I don't really care that much. Maybe if Vista turns out compatible with Fuego, I will use them both for a hat.
O.K. off to spin some more to get an entry ready for the SAL.
