So I’m a little disappointed with my photographs of the finished fire yarn:
They’re all just a little... flat. In retrospect I should have taken them outside or used my window sills instead of just trying the white sheet background:
But I threw this together in the 10 minutes of daylight that are left when I get home from work so I guess it’s ok under the circumstances. I am NOT however even a little bit disappointed with the yarn... I love it.
Crazy insanely love it.
This was my first major spinning project. My grandma bought me the fiber waaaay back last May at the Great Lakes Fiber Festival. It’s 1lb 3 oz of space dyed superwash merino and I’ve ended up with about 400 - 500 yards of worseted-ish yarn.
I was concerned that I under plyed it because after taking it off the niddie noddie (I left each plyed skein on there for a couple days) it seemed really stretched out… washing it solved that problem completely and now it’s super floofy:
And amazingly soft. I don’t know what it wants to be just yet…I think I’ll pet it for awhile while I ponder.
So in order to keep up the eye candy portion of the blog here are some photographs that my dad took of Lake Erie frozen over:
Edgewater marina is completely iced in:
I love the seagulls in the photo:
Amazing that in a few months we’ll be waterskiing!
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
