Knock, knock! Who’s there? YARN

I made some yarn, y’all. It feels like a big deal because I haven’t had a lot of time at the wheel lately. This is only the second skein of yarn I’ve made since the beginning of the year. It started out like this:

Hello Yarn Southdown, "A Bit of Zip and Sizzle" (December 2013 Fiber Club)

I’d never spun Southdown before, and I liked it!

stripe-y!

I spun it up into 332 yards of light worsted chain-ply, slated for socks for one of my kiddos. One of these days.

I split the fiber to yield short repeats of the color changes, and the yarn turned out pretty much exactly as I’d hoped.
