I’ve always preferred Ag, but Au is currently experiencing such a tremendous rise in popularity I figured I’d better spin some yarn with it (if you aren’t a science nerd, Au is gold’s elemental symbol on the periodic table and Ag is silver’s).
Unlike yesterday’s yarn (wild rice and calico cat are the current name favorites around the ranch, maybe I should poll everyone?), I haven’t even started spinning this one yet and I have a few name ideas. I’m planning to spin just Marcello’s fiber (the brown, no white) from “Deep Roots”, plied with gold beads of two different sizes. I’m thinking “Gold Vein” as the name. As a second, likely-to-be-axed-immediately-upon-suggestion name, I was going with “Thar be gold in them thar hills”. 🙂
