Fiber is magic. We who have become addicted to the stuff have been seduced by its magical powers, and live in the haze of BFL, merino, Romney, Corriedale, Wensleydale, mohair, cashmere, llama, alpaca, silk, Tencel, linen, flax, soy, bamboo, cotton, latte, and on. Some of us take it as it comes, and let it speak to our fingers and our eyes. Others need to know the history of its source, and feel compelled to excel at how it is traditionally supposed to be done.
None of the specifics matter globally. All that matters is that the magic of fibers has touched our lives and we enjoy working with it, being challenged by it, or having it stimulate our creative vibes. And once addicted, some of us find ourselves with fiber in teapots, in the freezer, under the bed, or going out in the woods and having to walk 14 km for beer and cashmere TP (yeah, that's you, Stephanie )
So, when I saw this colorway of merino on The Yarn Wench's website in a subtle variation of colors I like, I had to spin it. Like, how could one not want to spin a colorway called Majik? It has warm tealish-grays and peachy pinks in it. Again, this is not my most consistent yarn, but it is more balanced than my previous spinning, so I am happy with it. I ended up with 437 yds from the 4 ounces.
What to make with it? I am thinking of Anne's That Little Scarf .... the imperfections in yarn diameter I am thinking would be attractive in this pattern...
