You might have seen this BFL called Portrait of a Lady by Sock Pixie on a prior post:
Well, I plied it and it turned into this:
It's soft as 'budda' and is going to be draped around my neck this winter. I'll be wearing it and bragging, thank you very much.
Then I took this Forest Floor (merino/targhee/rambouillet) from It's a Colorful Life, and with the help of Nilda, Cynthia and Amparo, I was able to separate, pre-draft and bag before leaving knitting class today:
And I was able to spin a little bit of it up before my self-imposed deadline:
Thanks ladies! It's not enough spinning to get a real idea of what it will look like, but it kind of reminds me of camouflage clothing. Here's hoping it plies up into a beauty of a yarn that will be a nice holiday present for someone.
There's no time to waste, I've got to get onto the next fiber. I'll have to pre-draft alone, and by the time the so-called day of rest comes around (Monday), I'll have to finish up all the start ups I started. So the day of rest won't be a day of rest at all!
