Welcome Interruption

Several weeks ago, I pulled over my spinning wheel and decided I wanted to make something that didn't involve a lot of blending on the drum carder. I just wanted to spin and I wanted to make something in high contrast: black and white. So I grabbed some luscious organic merino and my bag of black icelandic uncarded locks and set to work. After I made the single, I decided to ply it with some thin singles that I had spun earlier -also merino but this time ever so slightly handpainted with a pale pink. The result was at once subtle and shocking:



I wasn't even sure I should try to sell it since it was, well, so unusual. In any case, I took some pictures, called it "Interruption" and put it in my etsy shop, and indeed, it did sell. It sold to a fellow etsy-ian Charte Chic.

Yesterday she sent me a note and a link to her shop.



Nice, eh?
