I've missed the last two months of Spindlers challenges, which is a shame because the themes were fun, but I'm not missing the June 2012 challenge! The theme is "Undercover." My immediate association is with cops & criminals and superheroes & supervillains. It occured to me that the ultimate undercover character is Mystique from the X-men comic, and I just happen to have some fiber in my stash that would be perfect to use for a yarn inspired by her.
Here's Mystique (as featured in the X-men movies):
and here's my fiber:
This fiber is leftover from a dye class I took in 2010. It's a wool-mohair mix and should spin beautifully. I decided to keep with the blue theme and use a 1.3 ounce blue spindle for this yarn:
(Refresher info: The Spindlers group on Ravelry has monthly theme challenges where you start & finish a yarn within that calendar month using a spindle. Click on the discussion thread for the June challenge if you would like to follow it.)
