The Perfect Balance

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.

  1. 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.
