waiting (for alpaca).

I am so impatient when it comes to handspun yarn. I hang it in the kitchen, on a hook over the sink that I imagine was intended for a planter, and I touch it every time I walk by. Which is a lot. Dry faster! I want to skein you up and admire you! Alas, the alpaca is still quite damp, but even now, I am starting to get a sense for the finished yarn, and I’m quite happy with the angle of the twist in the ply. It is still hard to tell exactly how soft this is going to be, but it feels lofty. Monday is my busy, all-day-on-campus day this semester, so maybe by the time I get home this evening, the alpaca will be dry.

I am also waiting for the coffee to be ready. (Or I was, when I took the picture. I’m now enjoying the first few sips from my mug.) Oh, Monday.

Hope your week is off to a good start!

  1. The yarn looks very soft even half wet! My only try at Alpaca left me with something resembling wire… Looks like you’ll have a sunny Monday! It just started pouring again outside. Have a good day!

  2. It’s awful waiting for things to dry, isn’t it? I feel the same way waiting for knits…I just want to wear you, dammit, hurry up and dry!! And I’d be ultra-impatient with this new yarn of yours…it looks gorgeous so far!

  3. Oooh, I’d be impatient too! I hope you came home to find lots of lovely and dry alpaca waiting for you. That’s a good way to end a Monday.

  4. I would totally be walking by and petting the alpaca, too. It looks luscious, I can’t imagine how it feels!

  5. That alpaca looks so yummy. Hope it was dry by the time you got home and you were able to fondle it all evening!
