Dyeabolical Batts

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?

  1. I keep my tags with each fiber and attach again as soon as the yarn is dry. If I have a tag in the first place. I’ve entered some of them in my ravelry stash, so I reckon I can find them there if I happen on a mystery yarn. Other than that? No system to it whatsoever.

  2. I also attach my fiber to the tags, this is where I usually write the yardage and ply on the back for reference. I have heard of some people just taking a photo and including it with the finished fiber photos (on ravelry or otherwise.) Gorgeous fiber as always.
