Spinning:

I didn't get that much spinning done this week except for some Canadian locks I picked up from the Fiber Garden here in Jordon, Ontario. I dyed up a 100g bag of locks and started spinning it up on the e-spinner. Its very much an artsy yarn… thick and thin. I wouldn't recommend spinning mohair locks if your a beginner at spinning like me. They draft apart somewhat easy but when spinning they tend to break a lot. Which is not ideal when your having to feed in one lock at a time! Still though I am bound and determined to finish them up… the rewarded yarn will make it all worth its while I'm sure :)

Etsy Shop Update will be Monday, March 24, 2014 at 1:00pm EST.
