Alpaca/Silk singles

What are you most proud of? The fact that I got a clear shot with the long shutter time, that was hard work without a tripod. Used the back of an old chair to hold it steady. Also proud that I actually managed to find what I wanted in the manual, that thing is a bit of a pain to read. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get past the fear of the manual, it's worth it!

Q&A with sewsable

jojacks asked:
Love your colour mixes, have spun alpaca in the past, also baby camel which is also very soft if spun from the fold rather than a woolen spin, am on with spinning merino at the present for a winter cardigan for my daughter, have done quite a few different projects of late as we've had quite a lot of rain here in the u.k this past few weeks, so you have inspired me to start thinking about xmas now. x x
sewsable answered:
Thank you, it's a little more muted than my normal choices, but I'm loving it. I've got some camel down to spin at some point as well as a whole heap of other fibres. I definitely prefer animal fibre to plant though. Hopefully I'll have some knitting photo's soon too. Currently working on socks and frilly cuffs.
