Is is Saturday already? It’s amazing how the week whooshes by when you’re away for a weekend. I haven’t even had time to get up pictures of my purchases from last weekend.
First I’ll show you that I did start spinning a box from The Cupcake Fiber Company. This is Falkland in lichen. The green with streaks of yellow is perfect for me. I’m only about 1/3 into the first batt, but it’s spinning up beautiful and skinny. This could take a while. Plus it’s a busy week coming up.
Here are some of my purchases from last weekend:
Natural Romney from the Stoddart Family Farm. Silvia apologized because the scale wasn’t functioning & so I wound up paying for 100g when I got closer to 150g.
A box of Wellington Screamin’ Green from Wellington Fibres:
A batt from The Purple Purl (stopped in briefly on Sunday before the trip home):
So yes, I’m on a green kick again. In fact the only reason I didn’t get green from Silvia was that it was Corriedale & I wanted to get some of their own Romney instead.
It has not escaped my notice that there seems to be more wool & fluff coming into my house than leaving it. I’ve started contemplating selling some handspun. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I love it all, but if I’m producing close to a skein a week there just isn’t time to knit it all.
