It's Like Watching Yarn Dry

Inspired by this beautiful scarf, I joined Funky Carolina's Scrappy Club.  Each month Carrie sends a mix of handpainted fiber scraps totaling 4 ounces.  Oh the joy of opening those packages.  They are like bags of brightly colored Easter eggs - or maybe the mad love child of Easter eggs and cotton candy.

To Ply or Not to Ply

Upon receiving these packages (two packages came at once - 8 oz. of fluffy goodness), there is nothing for a spinner to do but get them on the wheel.  Meals, laundry, spouse, children?  They must wait for the fiber to have its moment. 

After two evenings of spinning I find myself with 600+ yards of techicolor singles.  Oh the bliss.

The Singles, They Are Drying

Now, if only they'd dry.
