I don't have words

to describe how much I have been spinning lately and how pleased I am with what's been coming off my wheel. So I'll just have to show you.

First, from Fantasy Fibers in Canby: 3.5 ounces of mystery batt in soft greys with a few streaks of blues, greens, and rose; approximately 150 yards; 6 WPI; singles spun at 6:1, plied at 3:1 for a lofty, woolen thick/thin bulky.

Next, from Blue Moon Fiber Arts: 8 ounces of superwash Merino combed top, an Oops! dye of Rooster Rock; approximately 880 yards; 12 WPI; singles spun at 12:1, plied at 6:1 for a firm, springy worsted.

Two very different preparations, two very different colorway, two very different outcomes, and I love them both!


  1. oooo, very nice! Can't decide on a favorite. I like to live vicariously thru spinners. Fascinating but probably won't ever do it myself :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I adore Fantasy Fibers' Mystery Batts! It's an education every time I spin one. Both of your yarns are glorious. Whatcha gonna knit?
