Since I have spun up at least 12 ounces of fiber from my fiber stash in the past month, I needed to balance the stash by replacing the spun fiber. So I added some Polwarth in a brilliant red-orange-yellow colorway called Fire Truck,
and my first-ever spinning batt, Roses in Her Eyes,
which contains Merino, alpaca, silk, bamboo, and angelina. One must actually feel this batt to understand how soft it is. I wish there was a way you, dear reader, could touch this batt virtually, but, alas, that technology is beyond my ability. Both of these fiber purchases came from BohoKnitterChic on Etsy. I love Etsy. 😀
And then there’s a big bag of wool top I bought from The Woolery.
It’s 8 ounces of Louet Northern Lights in the Cotton Candy colorway. I bought it for the November spinning challenge on the Ravelry group Spindlers. The winner of the monthly challenge gets to pick the theme for a future monthly challenge, and when I won the challenge a couple of months ago (the winner is drawn randomly), I chose “Life Is A Carnival” as the theme for November. What is more reminiscent of a carnival than cotton candy, right? I don’t know whether I will spin the entire 8 ounces or just a portion of it, but some nice Cotton Candy clown barf handspun will fit the theme perfectly.
Agh. I don’t know if I could bear to spin that much candy clown barf (perfect name, btw) even for a challenge. You’re very brave.
Ever the optimist, I’m hopeful it will spin up and ply up nicer than it looks in the top. Of course, it will still probably knit up as clown barf. LOL 😀
Oh I’m sure it will be much nicer as a yarn than as fiber.
That bottom one looks like cotton candy. Yum!
