I haven’t blogged about spinning in a while, but I promise I have been keeping up with it! (As an aside, Sarah, how’s your spinning going? Your blog’s been quiet lately!) Hubby got me two new spindles for my birthday, and I had quite a bit of fun testing out the new darker beauty for plying. It spins so fast, and I am in love.
What I was plying is the end result of the experimentation in this post and also the last of the fiber my sister-in-law gave me all those ages ago. Luckily I having a surprisingly large amount of other spinning fiber left to play with.
The above is the end result of spinning as fine as I could manage without the yarn constantly breaking (and oh did it) and then turning it into a basic two-ply. It seems to be about 58 yards of bulky weight, and I think I might try to turn it into a cowl to match the hat.
