Project Description

What was your inspiration? Both of these skeins are from the sample pack course materials. The top one is Midnight Garden. I wanted to preserve the colors in that fiber, so I used the chain-plying method. I ended up with 96 yards of light fingering weight yarn. It was spun on a day of jury duty, with a drop spindle, then plied on my wheel. The bottom skein was created by drafting Summer Dusk and what I have to assume was Tavern (since I can't confirm on the Sweet Georgia website) together. I stripped each colorway into 16 roughly equal strips, then drafted one of each colorway together. I am very pleased with how the colors blended since the summer dusk colorway was just a little bit too vivid for use in most projects. This skein has 280 yards of two-ply lace weight yarn. I also spindle-spun the singles for this one over the course of four more days of jury duty and plied it over the weekend on my wheel. I plied from a center pull ball, which worked out nicely.
