I have been quite busy on the spinning front (as I blogged previously). But due to a brain fog moment, finished yarn has take longer than threatened!
It was like this, as I wanted a marled yarn, I began with 100gms of Mirkwood BFL dyed by Freyalyn and, as promised, moved on to the Oliver Twist silk brick to go with it. I had Two silk bricks as you can see. The one with the blues and greens in (which is destined for the Mirkwood) and one with autumn browns and reds -to go with the next project which involving 100gms of Redleaf (thank you Freya).
So I picked up the wrong one. So I didn't notice until I was half way through it. So it could happen to anyone. Ok, it couldn't. Bloody brain fog! At this point I was left with a full bobbin of Mirkwood BFl and a bobbin of Autumn silk. Choice. Either spin more silk or spin the Red Leaf. I chose the Red leaf. It's quicker. No, really it is. Not by much I'll grant you, but....
Voila! I really am pleased with this. I suspect there is enough here for a generous waistcoat possibly with sleeves. Maybe.
So. I'll blog again once I've plyed the original silk, which oddly I happen to be spinning at the moment, with the Mirkwood which is sitting patiently upon it's bobbin.
