Eggplanted in front of El Matchador


I can't get enough of this roving.

Love love love love love.


The colors are really rich and the way the two fibers (bamboo and merino) take up dye, produces a ton of depth in the singles. Also, I love purple.

The first bobbin has about a sock weight singles on it. The second bobbin (currently in progress) has a much thinner singles, maybe lace weight. My plan is to ply the thick singles with two strands of the thin singles, fed from a center pull ball, though I might just do a single strand of each singles. I'm kind of on the line about it.

I love this colorway so much, it makes me sad I don't have more time to spin, but it's a nice little treat when I need to rest from my deadline work.

And since we're talking spinning, I thought I'd show you my pretty calendar from Spindlicity. Janel sent it to me along with my payment for the neck warmers I designed.

This will be going up right next to my computer, in the office. It's a lovely reminder that El Matchador isn't my own spinning tool, in the house.


i love purple too - it's beautiful!! your spinning is so even!

That is gorgeous yarn. I am also a fan of purple & love bamboo blends because of the sheen (& incredible softness). Bamboo & merino must be heavenly soft!

I too love purple and have lost - LOST - my most recent purple handspun. I'm so sad over this....but yours is gorgeous!!!
