Yo Bloglines ! Can’t talk…

…Christmas is coming.

Remember this?

Merino/Silk 'Cranberry Bog'

Well, now it looks like this:

Merino /Silk

Fiber: 4oz of Merino/Silk found at Rhinebeck 2007

Navajo plied to 274 yards of DK-ish weight (RR has decided this is the heaviest yarn I’ve ever spun)

As soon as it’s dry, it will magically and instantaneously assume the form of an Xmess gift. ;o)

The timing of this project was perfect since last week Cynthia and I decided to get together for some Holiday spinning at a Starbucks in Avon, CT (about halfway between us). We freaked out the muggles for a few hours and she learned to Navajo ply. It was a great day – and she was doing a great job with the plying, too, considering we were sitting in what was possibly the busiest Starbucks on the East Coast.

Taking over Starbucks - Next, the World!

I’ll leave it up to her to post pictures of her yarn (especially since I didn’t take any photos of it). ;o)

  1. It turned out just as gorgeous off the bobbin as it did on. Lovely.

    Thanks again for giving me a few hours of precious Christmas time, I seriously appreciate it. I’m hoping to sit down tonight and ply that stuff I’ve had on the bobbins forever. You’ve created a monster!

  2. Lovely yarn! I’m still working on that whole Navaho plying technique. Did the muggles simply gape and stare or where any of them brave enough to talk to you?
