Spinning continues unabated even though I'm actually doing a bunch of quilting too. I suppose that means that knitting has taken a bit of a hit. I guess I can't really do it all. Nevertheless, it seemed I should show you the finished product from my Storm at Sea fiber. Again, this is a combed wool top from Lorna's Laces. It's 10 oz. and over 420 yds. I love this one. Colorwise and the way it spun up make me very happy.
This one on the other hand, I think I'll call Seeing Red! This was some alpaca batt I bought at an alpaca farm before I started spinning. I didn't know what to look for with fiber and it wasn't until I sat down to spin it that I found it full of short clips of fiber. It was really hard to spin, came out lumpy bumpy and just wasn't fun. I don't know the weight, but it's about 130 yds. Phooey on that. I'm learning so much with spinning and now I think I've got more experience in choosing well prepared fibers. I'm looking forward to the upcoming fiber festivals here in Oregon!
