The Soundview Stitchers are leaving for the New York Sheep and Wool Festival on Saturday. I promised to give away a skein of yarn to some lucky blog reader astute enough to find the Stitcher holding the skein of yarn.
That skein is called Rock Star and the person that gets it will be a rock star. I started off with this braid of BFL from Abstract Fiber:
And I thought I'd have more time to spin than I actually did, but I got halfway done by Friday:
And the rest done today:
I hope it ends up being a good quality yarn. It's going to be a 2-ply yarn because I spun it a little 'fatter' than I usually do. Hopefully it'll come out nice and squishy - like in the old days before I learned how to spin skinny yarn.
So, because my fiber needs overnight to rest I busied myself with other people. Like for instance, look who got her ears pierced:
What's sweeter than a sleeping baby? She's a little chatterbox when she's awake, too bad it's not a language I understand. Do you think if I put her in my lap while I spin that she'll gain knowledge by watching? Oh, I hope so.
