There is something very special about handspun yarn. I can't do it nicely myself, but I love how it looks. So you can imagine how happy I was when I sent some roving off and got this incredibly beautiful yarn back.
It's hard to believe that this beautiful yarn started life as roving that I was worried about. I thought it looked better in my head than on the actual roving after dyeing. But spinning is one of those amazing processes that turns something a bit awkward and uneven into something extraordinary. It's that whole spinning wheat into gold thing.
I'm searching for just the right project -- not at all sure of what this yarn wants to become. Any suggestions?
