Okay, Soryu is on hold for the moment. The sweater that is being designed and knit from the sandalwood and patina mohair has run out, so I'm spinning up 8 oz.of each so the final sleeve can be completed. It's a single, so it's pretty fast going. I did this half bobbin while we watched Scooby Doo and the Mummy's Curse this morning.
But in addition to this, I am also going to try and branch out a little more. So here we have 2 lb. of Gotland and 8 oz. of superfine black alpaca. I expect the Gotland to be easy to spin (it really smells like sheep, and it's been processed, so it must be pretty paint-peeling when it's raw - needless to say lots of flashbacks to hanging out in the barn during lambing season) and the alpaca to be challenging.
I think the Gotland made up into a nice, sport to DK weight 2 ply is just what I want for the fishing shirt design . . . .
