More yarnz

Someday you may get tired of seeing the yarns I've spun. And I trust that, should that sad day ever come, you will keep it to yourself :)

So, here's the second yarn off my wheel! It is Corriedale (that's the breed of sheep), and 120 yards. I call this yarn "Blue Steel". Heh.



I turned it into this!



Third yarn off the wheel- I really got the hang of drafting while spinning on this one. Falkland wool, 160 yards.



Fourth yarn, completed this weekend. Blue-faced Leicester, 170 yards.



I've been fairly stressed lately (hence the lack of blogging) and spinning has been incredibly relaxing and full of awesome. I think the stress stuff is on the decline so with a little luck I'll get back in the blogging saddle, if for no other reason than to show of my babies yarn kids. Or something.

Gorgeous! The hat looks wonderful on Robert -- matches his eyes. :) I'm still most in love with the orange/yellow/red shade, but I can't wait to see what you spin next!

i am very excited about your yarn. always post yarn pics. it all looks much more even than the first batch, so i think you are mastering the art of spinning. yeah for you. and roberts hat does look wonderful.

so after giving it careful thought (and robert prodding on facebook) ive decided you guys deserve a boob pic since you've never seen them. i will post one on the blogpage as im not sure the facebook crowd deserves such excitement.

That's a sweet hat! I love the yarns... you should start selling them no Etsy if you haven't already.
