I just need to show you this latest spinning. I'm quite excited about these colours. I went to the vendors at the provincial conference a couple of weeks ago specifically to buy myself a really nice spindle. There was not a one for sale! Not even one in sight!
To console myself, I had to buy some fibre. What to choose? So I got this bag of a blend of wool and soy silk in grey-pink-purple. I have to spin it on my trusty old CD spindle, and I don't mind because it does work really well. I am doing it fine (of course) and trying to keep the colours separated, but the way it was dyed in the roving makes it really hard to do. I am getting more blending of colours than I would like, but it's acceptable. I still haven't decided on how I will ply this, or with what. I'll decide that when I get there. I have 227 gm so there is still a little bit of time to think about it.
I'm really enjoying how this is spinning up. I am going through this quite fast, and I should be plying in no time at all. That is alright since I bought quite a few bags of fibre... so there is a lot of work waiting for me in the months to come.
