Starting a BIG project
We have a fair in my hometown every year and I learned how to use a spinning wheel there a few years ago. Since then, I’ve got a passion for spinning, especially alpaca fiber. I’ve never entered anything in a fair before, but have always admired the yarns and knitted things that people make. Thus, I brainstormed a new project. I plan on buying some alpaca fleece and chronicling the whole process of cleaning the fleece, picking it, carding it into roving, spinning and knitting it into a sweater. So far, I’ve got some already-processed brown alpaca fleece, an off-white fleece that I’m currently processing and a slate colored fleece in the mail. Wish me luck.
