I have been spinning the June SAL fiber from CJ Kopec Creations and I love it! It is BFL, and I have never worked with that fiber before. It is the softest fiber I have ever felt and it seems to almost spin itself. I must admit that I am pretty darn proud of my finished yarn and I really look forward to knitting with it.
My sister saw it as a single in progress and proclaimed that she really liked it. Since then she has hinted that something made from it would be a great birthday present for her. I have sent her pics of the finished yarn and told her to decide what she would like to have made from it.
Here again is a picture of the fiber that started this spinning project.Then the single as it was being spun.
Here it is, Navajo plied, 275 yards of a heavy-fingering/sport weight yarnI am really looking forward to knitting with this yarn. I am learning so much from participating in this SAL. Just seeing how other spinners work with the exact same fiber and come up with such varied and interesting treatments, is expanding the way I see a fibers possibilities when I look at it. I highly recommend that you participate in a SAL, if you have the opportunity to. The one that I am in, CJ Kopec Creations Ravelry group, starts anew each month, so you can join in the fun too!
