I made yarn. I bought this roving from Cavyshops on etsy.com:
Then I spun it on a drop spindle, and out came this:
I don't like so much how the colors spun together -- in some areas it's sort of muddied. And I do realize it's very lumpy. Much of that is because I'd never done it before, so I'm not spinning evenly yet. But because I like textured yarn, I actually did exaggerate it. I'm not sure what I'll make with it yet, since it only made 32 yards (not enough for a scarf).
Next up is this delectable alpaca/bamboo batting that I bought from Loop on etsy.com:
I hope to do a good job on this one, because it's so soft and beautiful. Maybe I'll take note of the process for a future blog item.
