So, after getting to know the fiber a little better, she started to spin up wonderfully! The 50% mohair/50% merino was a bit tricky at first.
I really think that the photo doesn’t do it justice; there is much more yellow and pink in it than the photo shows.
- Fiber : 50 Merino/50 Mohair – Persimmon Tree Farm
- Weight : 3.8 oz
- Yardage : 236 yards/singly ply
- Diameter : Lace/Light Fingering
(BTW – Tina … I’m taking a cue from your format on how you blog your yarn. Hope you don’t mind!)
Again … the photo doesn’t do it justice. It’s a great blend of blue, pink, yellow, and gray. I love it! Maybe, if I get it knitted up, then it will be more photogenic. This is, also, pre-bath. It was threatening rain, so I wanted to get photos. Now, I just need to know what to make with it? I like the look of The Yarn Harlot’s new cowl pattern.
Now … onto that Jacob that I spun up the other day.
I decided to ply it … she’s very pretty!!!
- Fiber : Jacob sheep
- Weight : 4 oz
- Yardage : 2 ply – 103 yd, single – 78 yd
- Diameter : Sport (the mini is lace)
I just think my yarn wasn’t in the mood for photos today. These are also pre-bath. The brown is actually very dark … the white in it makes it look like its ‘going gray’. I’m told this is the nature of the breed of sheep. I still like it. I’m thinking fingerless gloves …
So … that’s my most recent work. My spinning is becoming more uniform, and though I’ve come a long way … I still have a ways to go!
