12/18/06: Color!I found a loverly rainbow fluff at Rhinebeck this year and spun it up right quick. Color really pushes me on for some reason. I used the drop spindle for this to make it last longer, and I think I might still have a bit left to go but I started knitting with it anyway. I was trying to make little gloves but the size keeps coming out wrong so I have nothing to show for it. Here is the yarn at least.
I also got a much darker merino to spin up. Still have several ounces to go on this one, been using the wheel since there is a lot. I do love how spongy merino comes out. This is destined to also be gloves, but I think I have enough to also get a hat and scarf out of it. I only have a before photo for you today, but the first hank I spun up surprised me with how subtle the red and blue came out. It really made the overall yarn look a deep purplish which is very good with me.
