I finished a bump of Louet Northern Lights wool that I've had on the Hitchhiker spinning wheel:
Then there's this funky yarn. I bought this wool at a place in northern Illinois because I loved the colors - so tropical and luscious. When I started spinning, however, I discovered the fiber was a really poor preparation and was yucky to spin. I did a small skein from my first experiment and gave it away because I didn't like it.
But the fiber kept laying around and I finally decided if it didn't want to spin regularly, I'd spin a novelty yarn with it. So here's what I came up with:
Not pictured here because they're not quite finished yet are a camel yarn that is in the process of being plied on the Minstrel and some Clun Forest that's being worked on the Fricke. I don't have high hopes because I didn't do a very good job with the singles. Comes from not being very good at the long draw. I've been practicing, though, and I think I'm getting better at it. The aforementioned Clun Forest, the Cormo I'm spinning and the Navajo Churro/Mohair fiber I'm spinning with the Navajo spindle (which I'm almost finished with, too) are all using the long draw so I'm getting lots of practice.
