Feeling Breezy?

Well, are you?

How about now?

So, it’s underplied.

And possibly overspun.

But it’s lovely nonetheless.

The colors are much more muted when plied, a good lesson in color for all my future spinning, and it reminds me of a breezy summer sky.

I wound up with three skeins, for a total of 769.5 yards–a fantastic amount of yardage–at 36 WPI, making this a nice 2-ply lace weight. I’m thinking its going to end up as a Waves of Grain scarf; I have some seed beads that will match really nicely.

I decided to skein and wash my first spinning, the Mocha Latte merino from Fiber Monster, and boy what a difference that made! It looks so much better!

The SnBers, in their ever infinite wisdom, said that I should do something with this. So I did. Behold my fiber art!

It looks so amazing on my living room wall! Fits right in with cozy chair and my vase of knitting needles!

Such a homey touch!

Could an installation be in my future? Only time will tell!
