i went sorting through my fiber stash a while ago and unearthed all sorts of treasures. when i was first spinning and buying fibers, i went on a mohair kick. i have lots and lots of wool/mohair blends in lovely colorways, so i decided to pull some out and take them for a whirl. ~jasper beach~ was the first one i tried. i soon remembered why i stopped buying these blends. it was full of chaff and grit and all sorts of chacha. i kept picking it out, it was all over my lap and in general a fairly dirty mess. but the colors of the fiber were divine. i Navajo plied (thanks to erin's you tube post) and was quite happy with the finished product. the down side was the limited amount of yarn the i had. i think i've found a pattern, so i'll be posting soo.
right now i 've got a beautiful bump of romney lamb in 'herb garden' from maple row farm. lovely
the biggest excitement has been the weather. drove home this afternoon in a blizzard, only to have the sun come out and melt the snow, only to have the blizzard start again. got to love spring in new york!
