For instance, I have my knitting projects planned (in my head) through Spring 2006. There are a few gaps, though, and of course now there are spinning projects to plan, too. Which brings me to today's spinning question for my expert spinning friends out there in Blogland:
Could I conceivably--you know, if I knew what I were doing-- spin this (Meilke's Farm Rose Quartz):
with this (Mielke's Farm Sunset)?
Or would it be better to spin the two separately and ply them together? The project I have in mind for this combination would be Butterfly, modified to be a cardigan, because I have belly issues. The issues would be that my belly sticks out in an unflattering way, and the wings of Butterfly would merely create a lovely frame for the protruberance. Again, we have the critical striping quandary, now left in deeply inexperienced hands.
Or would blending these two wools into one yarn make a muddy mess? They are variegated already, after all; perhaps I shouldn't mess about with the colors.
So here, just to recap, are the questions at hand:
Can you spin two variegated wools together?
Or is it better to spin them separately and ply them together?
Or should you leave them alone already and stop fussing?
