Fibre Update

Lest you think I've been lazing around just watching baseball (chance would be a fine thing!) and failing to finish books, I thought I'd better show you what I've been spinning.

Here is the first bobbin of the hand-dyed purple roving that was a gift from the lovely Natalie and Cheryl of the St Petersburg Fiber Fanatics.

It's destined to be some lacey fingerless gloves I think. I love the subtle variations in colour - they don't really show up in the photo, but should be more apparent when it's plied and washed.

Before I started to spin the lovely purple stuff I finished some alpaca that I had lying about in the stash.

I think there's probably enough of this for a short shawl or a scarf. Very snuggly.
