F is for . . .

Fleece Artist. Yum!

I’ve had this roving in my fiber stash for a couple of months but just haven’t had the chance to spin it up.

And it was the song of the Fleece Artist siren that helped put an end to my participation in the Stashalong. Alison posted a message to the Socknitters group that she’d received a new shipment of their merino sock yarn and I felt I had to act quickly. So two skeins of the newer, thinner merino sock yarn joined my stash:

Hercules and Origin:

I used some of the older, thicker-spun Fleece Artist sock yarn last year and loved the hand. The new stuff is quite a bit thinner. Has anyone tried it yet???
