Episode 138 | Another Combo Spin + Sweater Update

The first show of 2017!!  Kicking things off with a new spin, an old (ish) project, a review and plenty of enthusiasm!

Thanks for joining me!

Review |
We take a look at Hong Kong based KPC Yarn. With 4 base fiber offerings, each coming in at least 3 different yarn weights and 40 to 60 different colors, they are definitely worth a second look!

Thank you to KPC Yarn for providing the yarn and swatches for review!

Hand Spinning |
Combo Spin with Into The Whirled Falkland in the il tramonto colorway and Spunky Eclectic Falkland in Nebula - both were club colorways from the spring of 2015.

I walk you through my planning and fiber prep for this project.  I will be spinning it on using the smallest whorl on the regular flyer on my Lendrum spinning wheel.

I also give an update on my Pigeonroof Studios Shetland singles I talked about on the last episode.
