First, the good. Winston, the Shetland fleece, spun up into a gorgeous little sample.
Then he knit up into this lovely swatch.
I think I see the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
As for the bad, I can honestly say I did not enjoy spinning this Cormo/Silk blend. It was lumpy and sticky and I had to fight it every inch of the way. It also bled like....well, like something that bleeds teal and gold all over the place. It was a mess to wash.
It's also ugly. I should have known that when teal mixes with orange you get a color that's hard to describe. It's an ugly greenish gold but not as pretty as green or gold. It looks better in this photo than it does in real life. Trust me. It's ugly. Having said that, I am pretty sure I am going to go knit something with it just to see what it does. I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.
