  • Daniela finished spinning a three ply yarn. The first strand is Quick Sizzle from KnittyandColor, the second strand is Dark Horse by KnittyandColor and the third strand is Lilacs by Miss Babs. Daniela had leftover of Dark Horse and Lilacs and so plied those for a 2 ply yarn.
  • Daniela spun a Kaleidoscope Batt from Unwind Yarn company. She was able to get 176 yards from 2.5oz.
  • Daniela had a little dye experiment after receiving Rose Hip and Hibiscus Tea and being intrigued by the color. She also used some Ginger tea for a soft yellow and Chai for a warm beigy brown. The yarn is a lovely pale pink with brown, beige and golden tinges. There are even some bright spots of pink because Daniela hadn’t cleaned her dye pot out well enough the last time!

Allie finished spinning her KnittyAndColor “Grainbow” - handpainted merino/silk in the rainbow snowcone colorway. 240 yards pre-soak two ply.
