I’m definitely becoming a better spinner. This is the finest I’ve ever spun, and I think there is the least variation in thickness.

The coloring worked out as I had planned, with the colors lining up in some places and barberpoleing in other places. I like how the white bamboo results in a heathering that hides some of the imperfections. It also has a subtle sheen in brighter light.


PS: Yay for kitties!

  1. That is all kinds of pretty.

    I’m kinda digging this whole Tour de Fleece thing. Even though I’m not participating, I still get to check out all kinds of awesome yarn porn. Sweet.
