I think this last batch of fiber, the 19 micron wool, came up rather well. One of them, called “Weather Worn” was done as a surprise. On my workspace I allow excess dye to run into a bowl in the sink next to the counter. After doing the rest of this batch of fibers, I looked into the bowl and figured “what the heck”, and the last bundle of fiber was soaked in all the colors at once. It reminds me of a weather-worn fence with some green-growing-stuff beginning to form on it. You can find this one on the http://www.knitivity.com/blog-reader-specials/ page along with all the rest.
In the hands of the right spinner, if this is drafted with a more colorful bundle, it would work up into a lovely subtle yarn. I’m not a big fan of plying different colored singles into multi-colored yarns (actually, it quite annoys me) but when each strand has been spun with multiple colors of fibers it creates a sort of organic living colorway.
Easier to have it all in one place, y’know?
And while I wait for the UPS guy to bring more yarns I’m going to busy myself with other things that must be done. He is supposed to come today, but sometimes he’s late.
