Here is a photo of the two enormous skeins that the batt made.
and another gratuitous shot just because I think it's so pretty.
Now my bobbins are almost clear my thoughts turn to my next project. I know I've still got just under half of the Muddy Jeans sock yarn to finish spinning but that's a long term spinning project (oh the excuses...). The postman did bring the latest Yarn Yard fibre club offering so I'm thinking about doing something with that because it is one of my favourite colour combinations and so cheering for this time of the year.
One idea I have is to split the fibre up into mostly pink and mostly green and spin it separately so that I have two colours that go together but would make an interesting colour work project. The fibre is Texel which means that it's a slightly more hard wearing and durable fibre than something like merino but not so soft.
Regular readers will know that I am very fond of colour work, especially the idle girl's sort where there is no need to work with two strands at once. While we were at Skipnorth I had a chance to have a good look at this book and found that it contained some really interesting ideas and methods for working with colour.
