The new batch

A Sea of Toffee and Bunny

One of the most rewarding aspects of handspun yarn is seeing it interact with the rest of the stash. Sure, the roving is divine, the spinning is relaxing and washing the dirt and labor out of the final plied hanks is revealing, but in the end.....the yarn among its friends is by far the best.

Plus, it leaves a whole new possibility for its future! What will it grow up to be? No rush, I just enjoy looking at it and getting a sense of the color and texture and potential as it sits among its friends, waiting for me to recognize its real purpose.

These fine newbies are from my latest escapades at the Chelsea Fiber Fair, thanks to the Spinner's Flock, and Rae's Yarn Boutique.
