Spun Out

Black Horned Dorset from DyedintheWool.biz gave me some up time in the form of spinning.
 I took a very long time to turn this into yarn but it was a very good spin.  Dorset is in the Down wool family which means it is springy and easy to spin.
 The wool was very finely spun so that there was room to bloom after washing!  (If you spin it a worsted weight size, after washing you will have a very chunky yarn!)
I will add this to the stash of natural colored wool which will someday be a Fair Isle Vest for me!

(AN APOLOGY-I LOOKED FOR SOMETHING ON A PREVIOUS POST EARLIER THIS WEEK AND WAS SURPRISED TO SEE MORE COMMENTS THAN I HAD BEEN NOTIFIED ABOUT...BLOGGER USED TO SEND THEM ALL TO MY EMAIL SO I KNEW WHEN I HAD A COMMENT AND COULD REPLY;  I GET ONLY A FEW EMAILS FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE THEIR EMAIL ACCT SET UP WITH BLOGGER NOW.  SO IF YOU COMMENT THROUGH ANONYMOUS, OR WITHOUT AN EMAIL ACCOUNT LISTED, I STOPPED SEEING YOUR COMMENTS IN MY INBOX!  I FEEL BAD AND WILL TRY TO SET UP A WAY TO CHECK MY COMMENTS DIFFERENTLY SO I DO NOT MISS THE COMMUNICATION!)  HAVE I EVER MENTIONED BEFORE THAT I CAN'T STAND THEIR TECH CHANGES !!!!!!!

  4. Wordpress isn't the best in notifying you about comments, either.

    That black horned dorset (Marley) looks awesome! I didn't know you were collecting fiber for a fair isle sweater. I can't wait to see what you have planned. Are you designing the fair isle part yourself?
