More spinning is always a good thing, and I'm pleased to announce the start of the Happy Porpoise Spinner's Book of Yarn SAL! This made quest grew out of a Twitter exchange between me and Jacqui of Happymaking Designs - she was raving about the book, and I remembered wanting to spin my way through the entire thing. Lo and behold, here we are a few weeks later embarking on a spinner's quest - ~80 sample yarns, 9 chapters worth of techniques (ranging from singles to boucle and everything in between).
The SAL will be hosted in my Ravelry group, and to start we will have a thread for each chapter, starting with Chapter 2: Singles for Plying. There are no restrictions on what fiber you use, so grab some fluff and get started!
As we go along, we may come up with challenges and various other contest type things - there will be prizes, both of the fibery and pattern-y varieties I suspect.
Sarah Anderson used Falkland wool for most of the samples in the book, so I'm going to follow suit - I've discovered that my plan to start off with my undyed Falkland has been foiled by the fact that it's all been dyed! So for the meantime I'm cheerleading and anxiously awaiting a fiber order. As soon as it arrives I'll be off with slub yarn and fat singles. Come join us and expand your spinning repetoire!
