There are times when there's just no point in fighting it. This, my darlings, is one of those times. Joan semi-demanded the link to my etsy purchase for this fiber. Something about wanting to see why I fell for it, I think. So here's the link. She doesn't seem to be very active these days. A baby, I think. Don't they slow everything down?
Slightly less food looking, yes? As we've established, I really pre-drafted the first half of the fiber. Not so much with the second. All that scallop talk really turned me off. However, I was still pleased with how all the spinning up went.
I love how the colors spun up. I loved the fiber in the first place because it was something different and slightly out of my normal. As I get better at spinning, my taste in colorways is changing. Thinking about actually knitting for real with my handspun has me looking at solids and semi-solids because handpainted is fun to spin but not always flattering to wear... and I'm never going to be one of those knitters in the Technicolor sweater.
Second photo best shows the yarns actual color, btw. It rained all weekend, and it's still sort of cloudy and weird here.
Since it's Monday. How about a little quick love?
1. The guy in the pickup in the grocery store parking lot yesterday morning. He waved me into a parking space instead of taking it himself. Meaning he had a longer walk in the wind and rain to get into the store. Chivalry isn't dead in the burbs. Who knew?
2. The sun finally coming out after a long dark rainy weekend.
3. Hearing (really) fat squirrels running down the roof before leaping into the big tree. Like the sound of a million chubby toddlers, but without the glazed donut faces. ;^)
