I have a tradition of "learning something new" as a way to mark my birthdays. I love learning and it somehow seems like the most appropriate way of marking another season of being. I'm a little late to the party but now I can spin! It just blows me away that I can make yarn.
My first effort on my new Schacht Ladybug is a sw merino/cashmere/nylon roving that was dyed by Pigeonroofknits Studio in the color dolma. I turned ~4.5 oz of fiber into ~125 yards of 2-ply bulky yarn. Then I knit it into a Dolores Park Cowl. Amazingly soft and squishy!
