Fiber Friday

 The Polwarth Unicorn Barf is finally done and I am more than happy. It was a tremendous slog of a plying job.

 As much as I hated that garishly dyed fiber, it's not too bad now that it is finished.

I've never been a big fan of the barberpole thing but it does help to tone down those cotton candy colors. Ring, ring...Katy Perry called. She wants her yarn back.

 Those singles were really thin. Maybe too thin. I was worried.

 It all plumped up after washing, thank goodness. I can't wait to swatch it.

 The Ladybug is now free so this beauty is up next. This is the fiber sent to me by the newly wedded Valerie of Wandering Cat Yarns. They don't officially do fiber yet, but they should, shouldn't they?

I hated undoing the beautiful braid but I needed nests to get started. By next Friday I should have some mighty pretty singles to show off.


  1. The Polwarth turned out beautifully-the colors are crystal clear and brilliant!
    The new braid/nests will be a great spin, too-just look at those greens!

  2. Love the unicorn barf! It always amazes me how much fibre changes at each step of the spinning process

  3. The childlike pastels of the spun yarn is deilghtful!

  4. The polwarth is such a fun and happy yarn. Love the mix of colors in your next project.

  5. Wish I lived close enough to watch you at work! Can't wait to see what you make with this yarn.
