Yarn #8: Pinkalicious!
This was a batt from BohoKnitterChicSpins on Etsy, and it contained a myriad of fibers: merino, milk, fake cashmere, ecospun, recycled prison uniforms, bamboo noil, and Angelina. I spun it as a DK weight-ish single with occasional (intentional!) slubs. Then I thread-plied it with lavender bamboo crochet thread. The result is 161 yards of squooshy goodness, and it’s going up for sale in my Etsy shop, fairly soon.
Yarn #9: Monkey Baby
I spun this yarn for Zack because he has been in love with the green/yellow fiber for it since the day it arrived in the mail. See?
I wanted enough yarn to knit him a vest or a sweater, so I plied the 4oz of this lovely fiber from Dawning Dreams with 4oz of my own merino fiber dyed a bright blue. The result?
Worsted weight, approx. 280 yards, super soft and bright. Perfect for my Little Monkey. 🙂
In progress, yarn #10 – Squishasaurus Rex:
The fiber is my Rex batt from CraftyPuppyLover‘s Toy Story SAL. After this I’m spinning Hamm; one for Will, one for Jilly. It’s only fair, after all. I’m thinking Will’s going to get a hat and Jilly will get a scarf, since that’s what she always wants me to make for her.
