Yarnography: Self-Striping and Spinning Adventures.

It's time for another photography post! I've been pretty good about practicing this week, which is surprising because I've been working on my first wholesale order on top of yarn for the shop (more on that in a later post!). If you follow me on Twitter, you might have already seen these first two photos, but the last one is totally new.

This was a new colorway that I dyed up. It'll be in the shop on Tuesday.

This is another new colorway that I'm absolutely in love with. I posted this photo on Twitter yesterday afternoon and had someone already claim one of the skeins!

You might have seen on Twitter or Facebook yesterday that I got a warping board to play around with self striping and gradient/ombre colorways. Of course I had to try it out as soon as possible, and the yarn closest to the camera is my first effort. That blue, yellow, orange, and black are all part of one very long skein. The whole process was really fiddly, so I hope it was worth it. Once it's dry, I'll be casting on a pair of socks for myself to see how it turned out.

Behind the self-striping yarn is another new colorway, and then waaaay in the back by the ball winder is my first braid of fiber that I spun on a wheel! I finished it last night at my knitting group on my friend's Ladybug. I also have my first wee little skein that I spun on a different friend's wheel, but it didn't make it into the photo. I'll probably post about both of those tomorrow!
