fun fabulous and fractal

For the past few months, I'd been wanting to do some fractal spinning.

January days full of paperwork ... (paper-pushing- file drawer rearranging- archiving and overall- drudge- work) demanded a break now and then. Time for fun!

There was some roving in my stash, marinating since last year's Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival. This is Dark Rainbow, from Gale's Art.

70% Alpaca +/ 30% Silk = y-u-m-m-y.

Aside from the initial division, there is no other thought involved...just the pleasure of a fast, carefree, thick and thin, let the slubs fall where they may, kind of single. Followed by a one-handed whilst the other holds a glass of wine, kind of ply.

I'm seeing a pair of fingerless mitts in the skein.

What would we do without these mindless spinning days when the yarn takes on its own form and we can just chill and watch it take shape. The best way to chill out and de-stress in my opinion and what a lovely yarn you have too ,it would look fabulous as mittens

Now these are my kind of colors. I love the jewel tones. This makes me want to reach out and touch the yarn.
