New Yarn

I have some new yarn to show, but I didn't increase the size of my stash. How did I do it? I spun the yarn from stash fiber.

First, some corriedale that I dyed a while ago. It is about 65 yards of a fingering to sport weight yarn. I have one other similar skein that I spun soon after I dyed it.


It's not very even, but I'll use it anyway. Any ideas for a project?

Next, I started spinning a beautiful batt that I got in a Knitsmiths yarn swap last year. I have no idea what the fiber is or who dyed it, but I'm guessing it's wool of some sort. I LOVE how this is coming out. The reds and blues and purples are blending beautifully. This is about 108 yards of a lace to fingering weight yarn. I have plenty more to spin, so right now I think this might become a lace scarf of some sort.


Both of these skeins were spun on my Bosworth midi spindle.

Mmm, stripey gloves!? That orange would pair up well with different shades of reddish and brownish.
