I’m calling this yarn “Midnight Magic.” Don’t ask me why; I’m not good at naming things. That’s why I make all my yarn and fiber inspired by literature/tv/film so I don’t have to come up with original names (now you’re in on my dirty little secret).
I spun this all in one afternoon, which is very impressive for me, if I do say so myself. Here we have it:
- 40z Superwash merino from KnittinK (gifted to me in the handspun swap b/c I’m cool like that)
- 2ply, Andean style (I wound the yarn into a center-pull ball and spun from both ends)
- 8 WPI, Bulky Weight
- 106 yards total
For my next yarn, I have promised Jillian she can practice spinning on my wheel. Am I nuts? Yes, quite possibly. She has chosen three pinky/purple samples from my Phattie collection and I’m going to help her spin them. So yes, I have a ringer in this competition but I’m counting it anyway since I will likely do most of the work. If I’m wrong and she turns out to be a spinning prodigy I won’t count it in my totals. 🙂
I wonder how long it will take before my body starts to break down from all this drafting and treadling?
