Simply couldn't wait to get my hands on this stuff and spin it up; look what came out of my enthusiasm!
What a blast this was to make! It's my first "artyarn", which I would distinguish from my other yarns on the basis of all the cool/weird shit in it. I owe a big thanks to Lynn, who both sent me the materials I used to create it and joined Natasha in encouraging me to abandon my defeatist attitude which held me back from spinning something crazy. This kind of yarn was the reason I learned to spin in the first place; it's about time I tried to make some!
My plan is to pick up some commercial yarn, either black or orange, and combine it with this to make myself a hat. Check back soon to see it!
Edited to add: Must be all the good, clean living I've been doing (!), 'cuz I just checked my Bloglines and saw that Lynn made a similar yarn from the same roving, and marked the 60yd. skein waaaay down; couldn't pass it up. So I'll use that for the balance of the hat. Score!
