Emily - Back on the Polwarth about 0.5 oz
Karla - Finished plying Caliope's Fibre Triple batt with a single of black alpaca from Sierra Vista Alpacas. With the extra alpaca I experimented with a Navajo ply. She might use this to make ghost dance by beth whipkey. Thinking about spinning my Muse Fibre Works braids and plying them to maintain the gradient this way.
We mention how much we like Emily's Echo Flower Shawl by Jenny Johnson Johnen
