Au, everyone’s fave element


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”. 🙂

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
