This is 2 oz. of BFL from A Verb For Keeping Warm in the Sadia colorway — my very first purchase from Verb. I wrestled with these singles a bit, but I’m quite pleased with the way these turned out, and I now have 203 yards of this stuff! (Also, singles dry so quickly! Thank you, warm weather.) I think I’m going to spin up 3 oz. of black bfl from Verb and then see if I will have enough yardage for a handspun daybreak shawl. My singles might not be plump enough to sub for fingering weight, as the pattern calls for, so I’m going to have to wait and see how my gauge compares.
It feels great to be back at the wheel. Also, I photographed this skein on top of an open cookbook in the kitchen. Yesterday I baked some banana bread, but failed to actually look at how hot an oven the recipe called for…which means the loaf was slightly charred around the edges. Still good, but man! I think my brain is officially on vacation. I’ll allow it for today, but soon it will be time to get into a summer mode of productivity.
You are a super fast spinner! This skein is really pretty!
Ohhh, pretty! I am thinking dog kerchief for Boh!! :-)
Yay for spinning! Sorry to hear about the lingering vacation brain. Once it takes hold … I’m having trouble shaking it off. Basically, let’s just say, I’m surprised I got to Germany with both my passport AND underwear. But nothing to read …
I’ve been out for about a week and DUDE! You’ve been busy! All that divine handspun (I think the Parritch would have made an awesome necklace!), a fab new hat, friends, flowers…very cool.
You are a spinning machine! And producing such lovely singles.
Ugh I have got to get to work. ;)
