This was the only thing I actually asked for for Xmas last year: a whole pound of Henry's Attic Andromeda. It's luscious and wonderful and a good deal, being undyed and unskeined, but damned if I was going to wind it into hanks by hand. So I put it away and forgot about it for awhile, and then finally...
... I broke down and got myself a Mama Bear Swift. I like it because it's good for both winding and unwinding.I love this stuff even more now that it's off the cone. It's a 50/50 worsted wool-silk blend, very similar to Lorna's Laces Lion & Lamb, or Sundara's Aran Silky Merino. (In fact, I feel like I heard somewhere that this is the base yarn Sundara uses... but I could be totally making that up.)
But seriously. How can anything be so simultaneously shiny and fuzzy? (Shuzzy, if you will.)
Next week: I try my hand at dyeing. Figure I'd better make a mess of the kitchen before we get around to remodeling it.
