It's Wednesday, boys and girls, so let's see what's on my bobbin! Mmmm, scrappy goodness, that's what. I've been working (slowly, been feeling very lazy ass for awhile) on a (S)craptastic style yarn - and it's done!
"What the hell is a (S)craptastic yarn, Velma?" Glad you asked, reader! (S)craptastic yarns are one of my Greenish products, made of 100% repurposed and reclaimed materials. In this case, it is naturally-colored gray Shetland wool that I bartered for (go, green!), filled with loads of yarn scraps all in RED in honor of the Valentine's crafting season. When I plied it, I threw in tons of beehives, coils, and stacks for added visual & tactile stimulation. Here's the pertinent details:
46yds./42m., .4.7oz./139g., 3-5WPI - Super-bulky weight
Available on Etsy!
Wanna see how it's made? Guess what? You CAN! I made 2 more spinning videos for YouTube consumption, one showing the spinning process, the other how I plied it. They're both pretty crappy vids, but you can at least get an idea. Sorry that the 2nd video is cut off; my battery crapped out before I finished!
EDIT: I'm having trouble getting the videos to upload. You'll just have to come back for them. :( Sorry for the inconvenience.
