Well, here are the late bloomers. Yes, only 5 left.
Everyone else is in here now in another form…
And meanwhile I decided to try a spinning challenge set up on Ravelry… a yarn generator based on a date system. What genius on the part of its originator! Sounded like fun to me… I put in the date for my birthday and that meant creating a yarn that incorporated autowrapping (see that rayon thread over the white section?), metallic elements (there are strange and peculiar glitter pompoms from the op shop as well as sparkly gold fibre and gold recycled ribbon)…
Yellow is required too, so there is some of the coreopsis dyed corriedale, some yellow preloved ribbon (there has to be fabric spinning too), and last year’s silk cocoons…
Then there is chain plying and the ever present eucalyptus dyed merino… and one mighty strange yarn overall!

I think that yarn should never be allowed to become clothing, but perhaps a tea cosy? Maybe a yarn bomb in a dark corner that needs brightening up?
Laughing out loud in agreement!! 🙂
glitter pompoms are my cats’ favorite toys…beware what you use that yarn for! : )
I had better be careful… I’ll keep my eye out for marauding cats!
