Good god, this was a long suffering spin.
And I blathered on so much about it…
Last year, I was thrilled to buy the wool – Pigeonroof Studios superwash merino in “zucchini blossom.”
I fantasized about pairing it with other yarn from my stash to become some sturdy socks.
I realized I spun the first bobbin backwards, so I got irritated and put it away.
I started spinning it again during last year’s Tour de Fleece.
I cut my thumb.
I blamed the wool and put it away.
I got it out to finally finish for this year’s Tour de Fleece.
I made a three-ply and thought all was fine.
I ran out of one of my three plies.
I am now done.
I have 258 yards of a heavy fingering/light sport wonky 3ply, and 114 yards of a light fingering/fingering wonky 2ply.
(And we won’t speak of this).
And I’ll shut up about now until I have a finished item from it…
if I ever have one at all…
(Incidentally, I did fry up those blossoms and it was a mushy miserable failure, as are most of my neglected zucchini plants which are lousy with stupid male blooms).

Well, it’s pretty yarn… Maybe you just can call it sculpture?
Thank you, and yeah, I’ve got several (maybe a small gallery’s worth) of sculptures…
The fiber is really nice in this one though, and the yarn feels good, so I think I’m going to start a pair of very simple socks with it after all, and just expect the mild jinx to carry through!
Lolz. It was the running out of a bobbin at the end that really sealed it. Hope the knitting goes smoother. 😉
