Bait and Swatch?
I’ve been pretty wrapped up in working with the fleece from BSG, but I did want to finally share the rest of what came home with us-
Just enough to try out- maybe 7 oz.
It was just so silky and lustrous that I couldn’t resist.
A couple of people had mentioned to me that I just HAD to try it. That it was heaven to spin. That I didn’t know what I was missing.
Ok. Turns out that they were right!
It also turns out that black mohair is really hard to photograph.
Here are a couple of my attempts:
This is the one to try and show how fine and light it is-
And here is a swatch (of course), to show you the amazing luster (too bad you can’t feel how silky it is!)
Very Nice stuff.
That was it for the fiber. Really. (Aren’t you amazed at my self-restraint?)
But we did bring home a bit of sheepy decor:
Isn’t that fun? Did you notice the little shetland tail on the odd-sheep-out?
Just couldn’t resist.
In other news, the stranded colorwork swatch I was working on at BSG is fast on it’s way to becoming a hat.
And Boo Kitty came over for a “meet and greet” with the pups this weekend-
The event was a little stressful for both parties,, but I think that with time (and close supervision) it will work out.
Hope so, anyway. She’s such a sweetie.
