Check it out: I found Blondechicken's Yarn Everyday Challenge via Ravelry, and decided to get on board. The challenge? Spin something every day for the month of April. I thought I'd take it a step further, & shoot for spinning an entire yarn every day in April! This is my Day 1 yarn.
I used the flowers I felted using the Husqvarna needle-felter I borrowed from Janet in February (remember my post about it?). I used the technique suggested by Jacey in her Sit and Spin! DVD, stringing the 'flowers' on pieces of roving, then spinning the roving directly into my singles. Those flowers aren't going anywhere!
I used the big ol' batt of purple Romney I bought from Janet at the Natural Fiber Festival last fall. Ended up with 100 yards of 6-7WPI Bulky weight yarn that I think I might full a bit to finish. It'll go to my Etsy shop as soon as it's ready!
