Anyhow, here it is in it's single glory!
Waiting patiently to be
The colorway named after Eric Northman from Trueblood.
I just happened to see this at Southern Cross Fibre's etsy site for pre-order. I got one for me and one for my spinning guru Megan. We both have a wee crush on him, so I thought this was perfect for us.
I spun it on my jumbo bobbin as I knew from the beginning it would be Navajo plied.
I am slowly getting better with my singles. You can see some awesome areas and some chunky ones.
It's so very soft and squishy, my first Polwarth spinning. The drafting is slowly getting better too.
Lookee here, almost looks like store-bought...almost ;)
It's bulky weight for sure. I'm trying to embrace that so far I spin dk-bulky weight. I hear all the time that once you start spinning sock/lace weight, it'll kill you trying to spin thicker.
Alright by me, one day the sock weight will come...the lace weight, hmmm I don't think so.
