I have been distracting myself with my spoils from the fibre day. i did very well if i say so myself.
this is a skein of polwarth tops carded with 10% silk from waratah fibres. It's very nice to spin with, very pretty and luminous.This is a 3-ply yarn i spun using optim wool (dyed pale blue) hand-carded with silk throwsters waste in green and purple - i plyed two singles of this wool with a strand of deep purple laceweight strung with silver core clear beads (these are quite small so they may not be visible in the photo unless you are really looking for them). It's just lovely, i'm calling it 'Moonstone'. There's only about 70 metres but its so pretty and soft - it might be cuffs for something.
Here they are together.And here is what i'm getting on with - a little merino spinning, another cuff option for my turtle walk socks and possibly another pattern in the mix.
