I offered a 3 Month Spinning Batt club during October and November with the first shipment arriving last week for the December premier (squeals, that's today) of The Hobbit. Each person received 2.5oz of my Alpaca blend fiber batt to spin. I, of course, chose to keep a couple of batts for myself and this is the yarn I produced. I did make a few extra batts which I will be posting for sale this weekend.
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
I ended up with a 3 ply yarn at 244 yards. I sold the yarn while it was still on the bobbin so this weekend it will be mailed to it's new owner. Golly, I sure love the power of the internet ;-)
I first became a fan of The Hobbit when I was a little girl. I read the book which was a part of a learn to read series including a cassette tape. By middle school I had read the full version of the book. I have always adored the writings of Tolkien and can't wait to see how Peter Jackson brings the story to life. Squeal!
