Yarnagogo

So I decided to take pictures for all you nice, and patient folks (and you drive by readers), and also the wonderful alpaca farms who are trading with me and would like to see what I do here at the Dandelion Spinnery. This is my yarn production for the month of September up until now.

Shadows of Grey - I spun this yarn from Bullet and Eve's fleeces to be very subtley variegated, with a new technique I unvented. Aparently I did something right, it was the first to go at the fairs.

Actually, I've been checking out the other blogs from the Secret Pal 9 participant list. I LOVE your yarns! It looks oh so soft, and is very pretty!

I love the fact that you can put the animal´s name on the yarn! And Stevie makes lovely yarn! I found a place here in Sweden, where you can buy alpaca, but I don´t know if I can keep a small herd happy on my balcony...
