Green Yarn

Here's some yarn I made! It even looks like yarn, huh?

I am trying to decide what I want to do with it. I really want to spin enough yarn to make an Urban Aran Cardigan or something similar. I've got 2 lbs of this green wool, and 1.5 lbs of alpaca, and I can't really decide if I want to make enough yarn to make a sweater out of both of them, or just use the wool to practice spinning. I am wavering between thinking that the green would make a really good color for a sweater and thinking that it would also be really goo wool to learn different spinning techniques with. I am definitely going to make enough yarn for a sweater with the alpaca. I am just not sure what kind of yarn I am going to make with it. Fat yarn? Thin yarn? Lots of plies yarn? Bumpy core spun yarn (like lion brand homestyle)? So this yarn is just sitting around not being used, and so is the spinning wheel until I make up my mind.

Until then, I am working on my Lizard Ridge again. Who knew that I would actually work on one of my random UFO's? Craziness.

Ooooh!! Make a sweater. How long would it take to spin that much yarn?

I think I commented in my head and not on your blog. Hee!

Anyway, pretty yarn!

I will probably be doing the same thing with the book. I am a big enough dork to do that.

I meant that I thought I left a comment yesterday, but apparently didn't. Again, i am a dork.
