A mountain of yarn
I had the great fortune to spin a soft mountain of yarn for a wonderful person. Soft with subtle hints of grey and brown, I can't take a photo that does this justice.
Hate to admit this, but I actually finished spinning it a few days before I contacted the customer who commissioned it - my excuse is that I wanted to get the lighting just right so I could take photos for my blog, but in reality I simply enjoyed admiring it too much to let it go right away.
3 fleeces washed, carded, blended, spun, plyed, blocked, and counted for a total of 2530 yards in about 6 weeks. Not a personal record for speed, but I took the time to make certain every step was done right.
