My First Yarn

A Day at the Fair - ready to be put on the niddy noddy.

Gum Ball. I am so proud of this stuff, I think it's beautious!! I ordered a second roving in this colorway because I only got 116 yards. I want to be able to at least make a pair of socks or mitts. Maybe a cowl or keyhole scarf if I get around 300 yards total.

I am going to finish spinning this Monet first though. Isn't it pretty? The braid looked mostly white, but when I drafted it the fiber became blues and greens, lilac and whites just like impressionist paintings by the master. Amazing.
