Apparently one word just doesn’t cut the mustard when it comes to yarn and I need to talk about that yarn in the picture yesterday.
That’s 4 skeins of yarn that I spun up. The fiber is Lincoln Cross that I bought from Barneswallow Farm at Rhinebeck. I bought the green and the rose in 2006 and the blue and the cranberry in 2007. It’s about time I got to them, don’t you think? It’s more or less a worsted weight and I’m thinking colorwork mittens. Any pattern suggestions?
The truth is, I’ve been spinning a lot lately. My motivation comes from the fact that this weekend is New Hampshire Sheep & Wool and I told myself I couldn’t buy anything if I didn’t spin every day for the two weeks prior to the festival. That was a good little trick I played on myself because it definitely motivated me to spin and it made some room in the fiber drawer, too. Heh.
Anyway, I’ll be there on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we’ll be doing the traditional blogger meet up at lunchtime in the picnic area. Who will be there?
