Purple Flame, in the Rain, Not in Spain....


This is some fiber...mohair, polwarth and some shiny stuff that my friend Barb carded up and gave me. It was only when I started spinning it that it's glory called out to me.
Who can say what I choose what to spin on any given day? Right now I only have one bobbin for my wheel, so what I start I sort of have to finish. Other than that, it's pretty much up to my whims. Oh yeah, other than that Bird's Nest Shawl that it simply consuming merino. More on the way tuesday and that back to finishing that.

I suppose what draws me in on any given day is the color I want to be touching. But, as far as knitting goes, nothing is finishing fast enough for me. I feel quite impatient with several projects. I promised I wouldn't start my fair isle sweater until I finished the shawl and a couple of pairs of socks, but that was a crock! I'd say I'm about 3" into it so far and I'm really enjoying the undulating curves. (Picture to come.)

Oh, pretty! I love the color variations; especially the red/burgundy. ToolMan's already scheming on your bobbins, so hopefully he'll be able to come up with something soon for you.

Did I tell you that my friends Steve and Connie from Spindlewood spindles know a guy that could make you some more bobbins?
