So, there was a day when I wanted to color my hair. I bought a box of color at Meijer. It must have been old. It turned my hair many colors and in some areas no colors at all. When I walked into the shop that day all Chelsea said was “no”.

So she called her room mate who is a hairdresser. She fixed it and I love it. I posted this for Amy cause she wanted to see:-)
Also, Amy sent me 3 pounds of Corriepaca in 3 different colors. I am going to make a sweater using all three colors. Of course I chose to spin the pink first.

I spun this yarn on the 3o inch Schacht Reeves. The bobbins on that wheel are surprisingly large. I plyed it into a 3 ply on the Louet S10. It took 2 S10 bobbins to fit the whole pound.

I like this yarn a lot. There are approximately 764 yards of the finished yarn at 14 wraps per inch. I knit a swatch using a size 2 and size 4 needle. I prefer the fabric on the size 4 needle. It is 22 stitches to 4 inches.

I need to get to work on the rest right away!
