I am glad to be back spinning. I had weeks where I didn't want to touch the wheel.
But now, here we go. :) I found some Superwash Merino Fiber in just the perfect shade of grey. I am really excited, and am spinning up these fibers so the momma can make wonderful socks for the gentlemen in the family. I plan to ply them with fabulously soft tiny thread like fibers, to create a strong yarn that is still fine and wonderful to work with. I have my fingers crossed that there will be excellent socks soon.
My plans next are to spin up a fabulous array of greys for sweaters. Mrs. Hanson is practicing sweater patterns now, so just about the time she is ready, I should have some wonderful yarn prepared.
The white is Alpaca. The light grey is also Alpaca, and the vari-colored greys are Merino and Silk. Should be something lovely before we are done!
