soul windows and sunset: skeins!

I am in LOVE. 426 yards of 3-ply, from 4 oz of 90/10 corriedale/nylon from the Spunky Club. LOVE.

This skein made me so excited that I just kept on spinning.

Here’s that cvm, waiting to be plied, along with the resting jacob bobbins.

and skeined.

188 yds of 2-ply, 12 wpi from 2 oz. of cvm from cosy in a colorway called sunset. The color is somewhere in between what you see above — so hard to capture such a rich orangey-red.

Boh is exhausted! (Though not from all that spinning. We took a nice long walk in the woods yesterday, and then went to meet friends at the d-o-g-p-a-r-k.)

Off to pour the coffee — and perhaps ply those jacob bobbins!

  1. So pretty! All of your beautiful fiber -> yarn success is really making me want to learn this spinning business. I hear it’s addictive.

    Boh is such a cutie. I love the big feet.

  2. Oooh, all of your handspun looks so gorgeous. One of these days I am just going to have to break down and get myself a wheel.

  3. Dude – you became an excellent spinner overnight, it seems!! Gorgeous stuff, that Spunky (socks?)! And I’m quite jealous of Cosy’s CVM. I’ve been eyeing it heavily, clicking back every week or so, but am trying to hold off until I spin&knit down a bit – having a hard time balancing the want/need to downsize with the awesome stuff that’s out there ;)
