Pygmie + Angora = CUTE

For my birthday, Julia got me the Bellwether Exotic Fiber Kit. The first fiber I grabbed was Pygora and having never heard of it I decided to see what it was.

The little cutie to your right is the first picture I saw. Read all about him here. I've quite enjoyed spinning pygora, though I've only spun a small amount. I'm using my 0.9 ounce Golding and haven't had any problems spinning it, yet. The color is actually more of a creamy shade than it appears on screen and I'm spinning the singles at a about a lace weight.

I've also been plodding away on my N2JW sock.

I'm about an inch away from the heel right now.

Love your blog! I'd recommend going to the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in September (in Canby)-its usually the largest showing of pygoras in the country, plus there's lots of other fiber animals and fiber goodies to buy. Be careful of the pygora fiber-its addictive!


Pygora is such a cute name. Are you better now?

Now, that is one cute little creature! I live in a no-dog building, but I'm pretty sure there's nothing in the lease that bans pygoras...

Your sock is looking great!

I love the sock! It's gorgeous.

I would like to roll in a giant pile of pygora fiber. I have some that is blended with a couple other types of fiber and it is still ungodly soft. Plus, I kind of want one of the goats. I told my dad that on the phone yesterday and his response was "I see those for sale all the time." I had to make clear that he should not actually buy me a goat right now or else he might have.

OMG she (he?) is so darn cute!!!! Never heard of this species before, so I'm gonna read up on them now.
