I have been washing up some AWESOME alpaca fleece. I have been spinning it as soon as it is dry! Yes, it is that awesome. I have set aside a little bit for the shop, so check it out! It is so soft it just about spins itself! I really love the color. It is a nice light chocolate brown. I am blending some batts and will post a few after I get them spun up!
I had some time to sort through my fleeces and wash up some locks. I will be dyeing some for my batts and art yarns. I have listed some washed locks in the shop and will be adding some dyed ones soon! These fleeces are really super nice. The locks are extra long, around 5+ inches (relaxed length, not stretched length!) These are the perfect length for spinning, carding, art yarns, felting projects, you name it!
I am posting an update on the cardigan I am knitting. It is the Ruffled Cardigan from Knit it Now. This is a great pattern. The directions are well written and easy to read. I have finished knitting all the pieces, blocked them, and am sewing them together. The photo is the long ruffled band that will be knit around the edges of the cardigan. I just love the way the tuck stitch pattern has turned out on the band. I should have my cardigan finished this weekend, so keep an eye out for some pictures!
