Spinning Update
From Top:
1) 23 micron merino roving in “Green Mango” colourway by Skeins - back when they did roving; I’ve had it that long.
2) Colinette merino roving in “Toscana” colourway.
3) Our heroes, still on the niddy-noddy and bobbin.
4) Our heroes, fulled and finished.
5) “Green Mango” is a bit all over the place: it had felted some in storage and I was lazy about predrafting, and then I tried to do a standard 3-ply, but as usual I was terrible at keeping the same amount on each bobbin, so it went down to 2-ply and then finally back to 3-ply as I started chain-plying.  It varies between 9 and 12 wpi - so worsted, I guess? All told, I have about 205 yards.
6) “Toscana” is 3-ply - I accepted my limitations and chain-plied from the off - and comes in at 12 wpi, so it’s on the heavier side of DK.  There’s just under 220 yards.
No plans for either as yet.  And I hadn’t realised how badly my table needs a coat of oil. capn-mactastic:

A spinner spinning alpaca fiber in the alpaca area at the Coconino County Fair. In the last photo she is using a supported spindle very much like Hopi and other Pueblo peoples use to spin cotton and a small version of a Diné (Navajo) spindle for spinning Navajo-Churro wool.

Finished up spinning my next round of fiber! It’s Spunky Eclectic on Romney, and I’m 95% sure it’s called “Aurora Borealis”. The “Blue Door” turned out too thin to be good for the kind of warm, fluffy socks I like, so I tried to spin this one thicker. There’s a few points where it drafted out super thin, but mostly I succeeded. I’m hoping for a nice DK or worsted after I chain-ply it.

It shed blue on my hands like crazy, but damn is it pretty. The camera does not do the deep blues justice at all. I’m super not looking forward to trying to get the dye out during washing—since SE’s stuff rarely sheds dye badly if at all, this stuff must be a pain to get to run clear! But I’m hoping it’ll be worth it when I’m done.

It’s resting while my back recovers. Then it’s plying time!

Purple Romney Bonsai, 2014
Finally used some handspun that has been sitting in my stash for way too long. Bonsai is a satisfying knit. I would do this pattern again in a different yarn, just to see how it would change.
I love, love, LOVE the curled ends. They are like waves or seahorse tails or something. whatisthisyarnidefk:
