I'm finally finished with some more alpaca handspun! I love the colors of undyed alpaca, they are all so natural and soothing.
Thanks for all of your generous feedback on what the yarn should become, I've decided on some nice alpaca mitts! It will be a colorwork project of some kind (once you become addicted you cannot go back) and I'll likely write the pattern myself because I 've been working on one that would fit this yarn.
Spun: February 2012
Fiber: Alpaca by Alpacas of Wildcat Hollow (100% undyed alpaca)
Spindle: Schacht 3" Hi-Lo drop spindle (2.2 oz.)
Other Information: 1 skein, 2-ply, ~200 yards, 4 oz., DK weight.
I have really enjoyed spinning this yarn as always, because I love alpaca and in particular love the fiber from the lovely couple of Alpacas of Wildcat Hollow.
In retrospect I wish that I had made this 3-ply, but then if I had I wouldn't have been able to combine it in a project with the last batch of alpaca I spun.
Also, I wanted to thank all of you who are being so supportive over my sweater woes. I just have no patience for poorly written patterns, but I think that I can work around those problems and have a pretty sweater to show for it!
