I’m working on the second bobbin now. This will be a 2-ply yarn so should be fairly quick.
This is such a dream to spin. It’s a shame that Yarn chef has closed her shop this year. if you have any Yarn Chef fiber you don’t plan to use send them my way hehehehe
Loving the colors and the bamboo makes it slightly shiny. This is going to a gorgeous shawl.

I’m currently working on Yarn Chef’s 60% Merino/40% Bamboo fiber right now. The colors are gorgeous and bamboo is really pleasant to spin. I’m going to make this a 2-ply lace weight yarn for a shawlette. Question: when your flyer only came with one set/side of hooks, is there any way I can wind the yarn onto the bobbin more evenly? I decided to not get a WW for my Kiwi and instead just save the money for a Matchless later. Perhaps I should get a sliding hook flyer that was made for Kiwi 2?

So pretty! I love the combination of pink and rose gold…
Here is my update for SPAKAL 2013. I haven’t decided what I’m gonna make with it other than I want a sweater.
This is a pound of merino wool I bought from Crown Mountain Fibers. I got it in ecru undyed roving, spun lacewight singles and then made into 3-ply yarn. Then I dyed it with iDye by Jacquard in olive color. This is the end result!
