who could resist the siren song?

of the luscious pink fluff? not i!

thanks bethieee for sending me the fluff, i have been sorely neglecting the wheels lately...

this pink goodness was just begging to be spun up laceweight on my jensen tina II.

now it is about 272 yards of 2 ply.

on the niddy noddy.

having a warm bath.

hanging from my skein dryer, aka chandelier.

wound on the ever elegant toilet paper roll.

measured on the wpi sett gauge, 28 wpi.

after it had a bath, and was towel dried, the yarn got a good whapping on the edge of the sink. i'll have to ask bethieee* what the fibers are, it had shiny bits like angelina and is nice and fuzzy, but still very soft. the whapping helped bring out the fuzziness.

methinks this yarn will make a lovely scarf for dd. maybe kiri, or another pattern worked from the tip up.

* who could be in a bad mood with a name like bethieee?

The skein dryer furnishings look like Ash Cascade by S-Bend.... I have chairs that look very much like those, if not exactly like them!

The yarn looks beautiful!

And if you asked me what the fibers were I've have to confess that I don't actually remember!

I can, however get an answer for you at some point after I get home and ask the Peacock and look in the stash for a bit to find the likely suspects...

Beautiful! And you really did whap it on the sink? Should I do that to my silk/merino blend??
