The Great Balls of Fiber, 70/30 Colonial Wool/Silk, that I bought at Oregon Flock and Fiber in 2005 is almost all spun into yarn. I was trying to think why I have so little to show for this year's spinning and finally realized that I threw everything into getting a lap blanket spun and woven for my brother.
The name for this color pathway is Desert Sunset and I think it certainly is. The last SpinOff had a question-
naire asking how you plan your spinning projects. Only 5% said they plan from fiber to finish. I wish I would have planned that way, because I would have plied this onto black instead of itself. I have 12 ounces of this, but plied with black, I could have knit a pullover. Now I have to spin the black and figure out how to cobble a sweater together out of the two.
In the last two days, six more of my bags have sold, all by word of mouth. I am stunned. These are all that I have left and the one on the right is so ugly, I'm going to put in our guild White Elephant sale this summer and hope someone places a bid.
