Cupcake and TdF

Last week I recieved some mail love

Katie (Jetgirl1313) sent me some cupcake (MadColor)


This is superwash merino, nylon and bamboo fiber.

I fluffed it out, spilit it in two then split one half into 8 sections.


I spun the split up sections first onto one bobbin


Some of it is over spun but it will loosen up in the plying.

Now I am spinning the 2nd half straight as it is presented.

Thank you Katie, this has been fun!!

I added this to my Tour de Fleece spinning after I had finished the masham that was on Roo


and the novelty yarn that was on the FS

How exciting! Those are beautiful colors. I have never spun bamboo and now I really want to try.

Hi there, I just found your blog. I'm a new sock knitter, and I was doing a search for regular plain socks with the afterthought heel. Poof, your blog post popped up with your vanilla sock pattern. It's just what I was looking for.

I see you also have a podcast, I'm going to go take a listen.

It's nice to meet you. :)
