Winter Wonderland Yarn

The sewing machine is still down while a part is on backorder. Since I haven't figured out how to free motion quilt on my daughter's machine, I decided to spin up a little yarn in our color theme. I dyed some Romney wool and mohair locks a bright blue and added white fake cashmere and firestar nylon to the mix. The color mixing was a breeze with my newest toy, a Louet drum carder. I spun the dreamy soft batt into a thick and thin single and plyed it with black metallic thread. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this fun yarn, but I enjoyed exploring the color theme. Maybe next I'll paint some fabric!

Ooh, that is so pretty. Perhaps your quilt can be quite little and then it can be fringed with all that soft poofy blue and white wooly wonderfullness!
