It’s an oldie – here’s Cricket!

Hello Yarn Cricket

The skein on the left was spun in May/June, the one on the right, September. I didn’t spin for several months over the summer while working on some deadline knitting, and when I started up again, something had clicked, and my spinning was more even and thinner. Craziness. It’s perpetually underspun, though. I’m working on that.


My first post – let’s see how it goes. I finally finished spinning Baked Alaska. Very yummy. I was inspired by Hello Yarn’s picture of this yarn to find a plain brown wool to ply it with. Luckily, I happened to have some from my Yarn School goodies. I’m picturing this as the yoke and possibly a decorative edge on a top-down cardigan for myself.
