So I got started on spinning the “Starry Night” roving, and I’m really not sure what I think of it yet. It’s very soft, and doesn’t draft the way I’m used to with combed top, and I’m getting fuzzles and bits of glitz all over my clothing. I thought I’d aim for a heavy fingering to DK weight yarn, but the fiber might not really want to do that. It might want to be a lower-twist, thicker yarn in the end.

This might end up being the first yarn to be listed in my Etsy shop. It’s pretty, but I’m not in love with it. Of course, I might completely change my mind a few ounces in the future. One never knows! If I do want to sell handspun, I’m going to have to spin with production in mind, rather than “what can I knit with this?” It’s just a matter of changing my mindset.
