Reaching the end of the red

It amazes me every time how a pile of fiber is so reduced in volume when spun.

There are four ounces of merino on this bobbin, and another four ounces of fiber beside it.

I was able to start this colorful fiber (it is brighter in real life) because I have at long last finished spinning all the red alpaca/merino!  A lot of plying to be done, but so happy to be able to say I’ve completed all the singles.

Now I have to decide if it is going to be a two or three ply.

But before that, some house work may be in order.  Unless I can figure out a way to spin dust bunnies.  In the interests of full disclosure, I found this one while pulling a bin out from under the bed to get more bobbins:

I’m both amazed and appalled.  It is practically a new species.
