Now THAT was a spinning marathon


Over the weekend we were busy folks. Mom, Dad and the Bro had some manure adventures, which I’ll detail tomorrow, and I spun a whopping total of 621 yards of yarn. How many CSI episodes? Only 24. Twitch.

I haven’t got a name for this one yet. Something involving charcoal, perhaps? It’s a medium to lace-weight marled yarn. I created it by holding black roving and gray roving at the same time, and spinning evenly from both.

I think it came out rather well, though it’s very…busy. Next time, I think I’ll ply one marled single with one solid color single to calm it down a bit.

Tomorrow: our intrepid manure wranglers take on “the big pile”.

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.
