Sunday again? Time to talk about spinning!
I did indeed get a chance to give my wheel some attention later in the week, so I have a finished skein to share!
The colors are not quite as intense in real life, but the light at this time of year is dim enough that photo filters are necessary. In any case, this is approximately 278 yards of chain-plied organic merino that is overall in the neighborhood of sport weight. It's not my most consistent skein ever, in large part because I know I was more focused on getting it finished then in maintaining my consistency. But I'm pleased with it even so, because it turned out soft and bouncy and round. And of course there are these amazing colors.
I even think this skein goes well with the last one I spun:
The fiber was one of my earliest shipments from the Southern Cross Fibre club -- definitely in my first year (I think the very first shipment I received was for February 2015; this one was from August 2015). I'm really enjoying the little trip to the past I've been taking via deep stash. I've got another well-marinated bag of fiber on the wheel now, Bond in the colorway Esmerelda from September 2015:
This is my HipStrings Base12 spinalong kit, a fiber Advent calendar of sorts. The link shows the yarn version, and I have no idea if the fiber version is the same (I haven't peeked at all). The set included a die to roll in order to spin at random, but I think I'm just going to go in order and create a mash-up skein. It's been a couple of years since I last did this, so I'm looking forward to it!
