Today’s Fiber News: The Day of the Finished Objects

These are new fibers to spin (or I should say spun as the fiber on the right is almost yarn).
On the left: 4 ounces of Merino Wool Combed Top “Lavender” from Ebay seller: Blue Goose Glen (I would buy from them again). It is absolutely lovely and since it is like a cloud, 4 oz. is quite a bit of fiber. I have not yet spun this lofty wool.
On the right: 8 ounces of a beautiful gray-blue baby alpaca from my LSY, Yarns Unlimited (and a local farm). I have almost spun all of this dreamy fiber. I am seriously considering plying it with a thread in either silver or gray to give it stability but not more volume. This alpaca is destined to be a shawl due to the drape of the yarn. I did not have the heart to spin or ply it with another fiber that might take away from the soft cashmere feeling.

It is true love with both of these fibers…meanwhile on the knitting front…I added a hat to my winter assemble; now all I need is a frost or flurry (seriously, not until December, please).
I still plan to post (asap) a photo of me wearing my tank: Milano from DaleGarn 123 and also my final SpiderWeb Capelet (Stitch n Bitch Nation). I finally decided how to do the closure on the capelet. I went with the 10” crochet strand, but instead of the pom-poms, I used three glass beads of different shapes. They really gave it a dressy look, which is what I wanted, rather than a casual or fun look.
