DSCF7621Thanksgiving means Fall colors to me. In the south things really start to chill off and change this time of year.  Above is what I think Thanksgiving colors should be. Here is the 2 ply yarn, all ready to knit with.DSCF7624I love the richness of the colors and the yellow makes it POP! My Friend Christina over at hand dyed this organic polwarth batt… OH my! Polwarth is so super soft and what a fun spin. Her work is so beautiful, and not just spinning and yarn, the hand made jewelry is beautiful! DSCF7623I also spun a skein of this natural alpaca. Both colors came off the same animal just different parts. I was given this alpaca  about a month ago when I was volunteering at the farm. A lovely lady walked up and gave me a bag of smelly dirty animal fur and I yippeed!!! I couldn’t wait to start to work with it and see what I had… DSCF7626Currently on my wheel I am spinning this Fin roving, one is natural dyed (grey-ish) and the other is not natural (pink) LOL! I never heard of some of these types of sheep before I start spinning and I think that is what I have enjoyed the most this past year, learning something totally new and different.

I am so thankful for many things this past year and  learning to spin would be on my list. I enjoy a challenge and something so peaceful and meditative to do with my time. I am also thankful for all the different people and opportunities spinning has brought into my life.

Thank you all for being in my life and may you have a wonderful time of Thanksgiving this week.
