All About Spinning All the Time

350 yards of two ply dk weight or so Jacob wool. I took this from raw wool to here. I think it will grow up to be a sweater for my toddler. And this isnt even the whole fleece so there will be about 700 yards when I’m done. I adore how it turned out. It’s not the softest in the world but it is airy because it was spun long draw so it is nice and squishy. It will be crazy warm!

260 yards of hand spun alpaca lace. This is a “seconds” from sugar loaf alpaca where they mix all sorts of left over colors that compliment each other. So there are hues of blue green and Grey in there. But its hard to see if you aren’t really looking for it. This is sooooo squishy soft. And I think it will grow up to be part of a shawl.

OMG! I totally have some handspun alpaca lace that looks JUST like this. I got it in Alaska last week and I have no idea what to do with it.

I’ve started and frogged so many projects. Right now I’m making this with it but I’m still SO tempted to frog:

What are your plans??

I’m thinking it will grow up to be something like this http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ruth-elisabeth with a different color as the body of the shawl and this as the edging. Though I’m not sure this is the exact pattern I will use. Who knows. I will need to get super inspired.
