A small Success with the Mohair Art Yarn

I rang up my friend Anne who has been mentioned on this blog more than once.  and had a bit of a whinge.  "I can't seem to get on top of these new yarns I  want to spin" I said full of  misery and moans -talk about the January blues.  "I think" said Anne,  expert spinner and generally a wonderful crafts woman "that you need to concentrate on  one and practice till you get it right" So I went round to visit  and practised and came home and did a bit more and here is  a lovely white mohair yarn on a fabulous mohair and  silk core yarn. yum It reminds me of snow and ice
Now the challenge is  how to describe it to  Online Guild of Weavers Spinners and Dyers for whom I  running a workshop in the rear future

are just starting  to appear

and now I am feeling a bit better


  1. Oh, how wonderful to have snowdrops coming up already. Today the high temperature is -15 and tonight they have forecast -23! Brrr, it will be a while yet before we can even think of something as lovely as a cheery snowdrop.

  2. Ooh that is cold! Yes it's nice to live in a temperate climate except when it is grey and wet! Keep warm

  3. I think our winter is over (at least I hope so!) - but the snowdrops cheered me no end today with their nodding heads in the strong wind.... one of the flowers that can improve even the darkest mood - together with daffodils!
    and the yarn really does look frosty and cold - but I bet it feels soft and warm?:))

  4. I saw my first crocuses yesterday!But remembering last year I am not being too quick saying that winter is over! Hope your tooth is improving.

  5. I can't wait to see the descriptions.. a very large success I would have described it as...
    Best wishes Shani
