A quick update on a few Sheepychic happenings...I've spun up "Sheepychic - Lillybet" into a funky rustic single...about an 8 ply...
Remember my old carder? I pulled her out and ran through some Rose alpaca..THANKY to Holly at Hollyeeq for the fleece cleaning tips...I got on much better this time, thanks Holly. I ran some of Mandie's divine red Merino rovings in among the alpaca..made for a very rustic and cool batt. I want to spin it up in a real primative style yarn...as long as it doesn't break... I want it fuzzy and lumpy and chunky and weird and feral. hehe..you get my drift. Due to current drought conditions I've used the bath to soak the alpaca to try to use less water. Poor M ran out of the bathroom asking what was in the bath..."Alpaca" I replied. "When did it die"?!?! asked the very concerned M...hehe...poor little guy!
I've also spun up some light predyed Merino rovings...also from Mandie (see eBay..."ewe-give-me-the-knits")
Hmmm...what else? Oh yeah...A little more fabulous gothic-style chunkie yarns for my Witchie beanies...it's coming up Autumn soon, you know...hehe. This one is a black alpaca with a commercial purple/pink/bally/shiney yarn. It goes together so well! I'm thinking a beanie cuff...with the top a nice jet black...flowing to a witchie point, like the one P has on near my profile.
Anyway..I have to dash...thanks for popping into Sheepychic bloggings. Any yarn enquires can be forwarded on to firstname.lastname@example.org. All the very best, Ruth....xx
