5 days?

And here I was, trying to post every 2-3 days.

Over the last week, I've picked up more materials for better photography (still waiting to pick up my tripod) and dyeing, and it's just possible I bought more wool as well. It's just that the spinning's going so fast and fun, I keep wanting to do more.

Spinning the alpaca/sari silk has been interesting. My first real novelty yarn. I spun a couple of ounces, then tried to ply it, and really disliked how it turned out. Meanwhile, I've got some black merino that I was spinning very slowly and was not looking forward to continuing in the same method. The lightbulb went on, and I plied the alpaca/sari silk with the merino, and it was exactly what I wanted!

I'm 2/3 done with it - another 2-ish ounces to go, then on to the other alpaca silk blend.
