I’ve been fiddling around with the “Create Collage” feature of Picasa. I’ve decided I need to do more of these. I like the idea of documenting the whole process, especially for projects that start out as raw fiber and transition from yarn to finished object. This is one pound of lovely, silvery Gotland. Costume designers for the LOTR movies used Gotland for the hobbit cloaks in the film. I spun it worsted to bring out the sheen, but that was a bit of a tradeoff for softness I fear/ The finished yarn is a bit like twine. The raw fiber feels very much like human hair. The finished heavy fingering to DK weight yarn (ranges from 12-14 wpi) is destined for a raglan sweater that I accept will probably not be suitable for wearing next to the skin. I’m going to do a patterned yoke with some hand dyed BFL from Fiber Fancy. I’m in the process of spinning it up now. I guess I’ll need to do another collage of the whole shebang once it’s done. The Gotland took me a year, off and on, to finish. I hope the finished sweater won’t take nearly as long.
