I got my latest installment of the Cloudlover Yarn & Fiber Fiber Club last week and I was in a spot that allowed me to start spinning within a day or so. As most of you know this is not usually the case for me because I always have a multitude of other obligations, but when it does work out it is always very special and fun. This month’s installment is called “Spice Cake” and is on an unbelievably amazing Organic Polwarth + Silk base.
This round of clubs I ordered the double dose of fiber, so I have 8 beautiful ounces with which to play. I’ve opted to divvy the fiber up just enough to gently blend colors in each braid and eventually turn it into a simple standard 2ply. I am envisioning a big drapey shawl in the yarn spun from this gorgeous fiber, so spinning a 2ply will let me maximize the yardage.
This is one of those colorways that reminds me why I so love the fiber club. These braids I would not have picked on my own — don’t get m wrong, they are stunning, but I generally gravitate toward cooler palettes. As soon as I started spinning Spice Cake here though, I was completely smitten and can’t imagine my stash without it. I am just having an absolute blast spinning it and can’t wait to knit it!
