NEW Novelty yarn.




Okay, so my artistic brain has been working overtime. I bought some lovely BFL/Cheviot cross wool from Lisa at Sommerhill Farm. I drum carded it with some dyed BFL lock (also from Lisa) and some Purple Flash Angelina. I spun up the batts (well, not all of them YET!) and then plyed with some beautiful purple silk I spun at our spinning silk workshot not too long ago. I LOVE this stuff. I haven't even taken it off the Niddy Noddy yet but it's beautiful stuff - I WANT MORE!!!!! I will be calling it Purple Haze. No Fiber addiction issues here - really! Johnny Jump Up is being washed right now, YES I finally finished spinning it and plying it. I wound up with 2 triple ply and found myself with quite a bit of yellow and lilac left so I double plied it and it's also in the wash. Pics later when it's all washed and dried.
BTW, I was given a niddy noddy and a Lazy Kate for Mother's day and I am buying some brown alpaca so look for a lot more fun novelty yarn coming your way. We will be at Prairie Wood Ranch for the East Mountain Fiber Farm tour the first weekend in June. We will have Fiber, finished products, goat milk soaps and will be spinning and maybe some needle felting while we are there.

An addiction is only a problem if it interferes with, oh, say, feeding the family. That's why I'm careful to make sure hubby gets fed every night! No complaints, no problem. --TTFN, Terri
