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!
