I have three extremes to show you today*.
The first extreme is in the extremely subdued department. It's my hand-dyed blue faced leicester, which you have seen in a couple of different forms. I finally got around to plying it:
I find that the finished product resembles terracotta, maybe with a little bit of cactus thrown in. There's not a lot of it; maybe 65-70 yards? It may be enough for a small accessory like wrist warmers, but not enough for, say, a hat.
The second extreme is extremely colorful:
Two hours later:
The fiber is Falkland from Spunky Eclectic, in the colorway Atomic Melon. I purchased this shortly after I got my wheel, so it would be around December 2006/January 2007.
I've noticed how far I have come in my spinning in the past month! Taking up the "Spin Every Day in February" challenge on the knittyboard really helped push me along, even if I didn't spin every day. I at least thought about spinning every day.
The other extreme is Extreme Stash Overload:
I had to go looking for a specific ball of yarn, because my mom's gloves need to be repaired. You know how things are always in the last place you look? Well, I would have found it much faster had I looked in the correct place. At least I was able to go through my stash, move stuff out, and vacuum the shelves. But shit, I think my stash multiplies like bunnies while we're sleeping. I think I'm going to have to get rid of some; I've got lots of weird stuff I'll never use, like mangled muppet yarn. Does anyone want any mangled muppet yarn?
Okay, I lied. There's a four extreme. It's Extreme Cute Overload:
Remember when they hated each other?
*Yes, I did rip the title of this from an Asian Horror film, geek that I am.
