I spent a day setting the twist in several skeins of yarn that I had spun over the summer. It seemed like I had yarn hanging from the chandeliers. Now all is ready to make into (undetermined) projects. The purple was a batt that I purchased at Grafton Farms while I was in Rhinebeck a year or so ago. It was wonderful to spin and made a nice light worsted. The pink was what was left over from the yellow and pink that I started spinning last March. I plied the pink and yellow together for a sort of orange two ply. The green and pink looked better as a roving and I guess I didn't space out the colors well enough to make a nice variegated yarn. It just looks sort of blah. The denim color is about a pound of Romney that I got at the NH wool tour and although it seemed a bit fuzzy in the roving, it spun up to a nice worsted yarn and I know that I will be making a sweater out of this yarn. What a good time of year to have all this yarn ready to be knitted.
