For a while now, I've been entertaining the thought of spinning a wonderfully quirky skein of yarn which embodies everything I love about the diversity of fibers. Last week, a swap buddy put out a request for bits of handspun fibers for her weaving project. I took all my leftover handpun and joined the ends to form one coherent skein for her to work from.

On the spindle, the colours were vivacious in spite of being haphazardly thrown together in the mix of things. There were strands of DK weight as well as lace weight, and textures ranged from smooth to nubby.

Once skeined, I marvelled at the cohesiveness of the yarn.

There will be many more quirky handspuns in the near future! The happy muddy of colours and textures makes me smile :0)
