Dana: Vorticity shop sample, Mom’s Birthday Anklets, Snowman Ornament (B’s stash entry), Beans The Cat, Minikins (7 so far), Washcloth FPDC (3 finished), Colorwork Ornaments (finished 2 from the specified pattern and was inspired to write my own pattern!), Yarn Hollow superwash BFL navajo ply (121yds bulky weight), Harmony Wools Alpacas alpaca/silk navajo ply (78yds fingering weight), green romney navajo ply (135yds sport weight), Unwind Yarn Company merino/silk 2ply (327yds sport to dk weight).
Stash Stories: What is your favorite fiber or blend to spin? (wexfordknits)
Dana: my all-time favorite is Falkland. I also enjoy Jacob, Polwarth, BFL, Rambouillet, Cormo, and Targhee. I hate hairlike fibers like Teeswater, Lincoln, Cotswold, Wensleydale, and Masham. Ugh. Silk blends are fine, but not necessarily my favorite. I prefer top to batts. Farm roving is ok as long as it isn’t neppy.
Brittany: Polwarth, I like silk blends as long as they’re well blended. Wool batts with lots of sari silk. I will second that “Ugh” for hairlike wools!
