This is FINALLY out of my stash! How? I overdyed it. This was from a club shipment from Yarn Pirate way back in 2008, Merino Tencel in Butternut colorway. None of these are my colors. I tried destashing it back then but no takers. So I overdyed it last week.
I love the new yarn.
This was also an overdye of some ugly colorway that I did NOT order but got it anyways because of a crappy yarn store going out of business sale. It's Lorna's Laces Shephard Sock in the old put up.
Here's the first top I dyed. It's 4 oz. of Lincoln wool that I dyed in my favorite colors. I may spin this up next. I've never spun Lincoln.
This was a light grey Swalesdale bump that I bought at Smoky Mountain Spinnery in Gatlinburg, TN last weekend. This is the LYS that I learned to spin at. It's been 5 years since I've been there and they have definitely made their spinning section larger. I tried the Matchless and Ladybug wheels. That was my first time spinning on a wheel other than my Fricke, and definitely my first time double treadling. I actually liked spinning on the Ladybug more because it was easier to treadle, but boy did that Cherry Matchless look pretty.
So eventually, when I'm out of nursing school, (I GOT ACCEPTED INTO CLINICALS!!!) I may be in the market for a new w wheel. I will not be getting rid of my Fricke though. I like it but I think having a double treadle will be nice.
So I would like to try to write about some of my experiences in nursing school since there doesn't seem to be many out there that were written in the past two years or so. We'll see though because I'm not sure how much time I'll have. I will be updating more throughout the summer though!
