So, my blue dyeabolical batts, which were a combo of merino and angelina (I think, because I’ve misplaced the tag, I really need to make a system for my tags!) are complete. I spun these on my Neal Brand tibetan. I had 2 matching batts. I spun each on one spindle, which turned out to be quite a challenge as the spindle was so full it got really laggy and slow. I spun each in a gradient, so that I could ply them together into a 2 ply gradient, light to dark. Personally, I love this skein. It is 25o yards of 2 ply, it is nice, light, and bouncy. At about a sport weight yarn it is going to make something quite beautiful. And no, I don’t know what that will be.
I’ve been thinking about this tag issue quite a bit. Everyone knows that I am not the most organized person out there, and I hate clutter even though it seems that clutter builds up. Generally my way of dealing with it is to get frustrated and throw everything out. Which means I misplace tags and then throw them out. I will never be the kind of person who keeps a spinning notebook with tags and samples. No no no, I don’t even want to BE that person. However, I’ve got to figure out some system. What do you do with your tags and how do you keep your fiber arts organized?
