Spinning in the park

So on Saturday, it was such a gorgeous day out, Matt and I decided to go to the park.  I took my Ashford with me.  And some roving.  It was a great day!  It was a little chilly, but the sun kept us warm enough to bear the chill for an hour or so.  Here’s a few pictures.

And from the spinner’s point of view. . .

I also finished my fair isle hat!  It’s a just a tiny bit too small, but it fits without falling off.  It was made with Ultra Alpaca which is lovely to the touch, however it is very very fine and maybe a little too slippery.

All in all it turned out well.  And I have to brag about the new yarn that I got today.  It’s from Dream in Color.  One skein of Smooshy sock yarn, and one skein of Baby lace weight.  Mmm, can’t wait to dig into this!

That was Baby and this next one is Smooshy.

The colors may be a bit off because the lighting at the table wasn’t all that great.  But they are beautiful still.  That’s all for now.  More to come!
