Spinning

I’m bored with all my knitting projects. And after sitting at a computer all day, I haven’t wanted to blog. There’s been progress on a few things… nothing that I am super excited with, and nothing summery and finished.

In between not knitting, working, and making innumerable visits to medical establishments lately (neither the eye dilation nor the post-tooth-drilling headache have augmented the crafting), I did a bit of spinning. This gold stuff, about 2oz., went very quickly.

But the merino tencel took ages, and it’s difficult to photograph. Gorgeous to knit, though.

And I just experimented with something labeled “natural colored wool” – perhaps 0.5oz… the spinning went quickly on this – maybe sticking with plain old wool is the key?

After that, I about tore my hair out with the >1in. drafting zone of the recycled denim.

Tonight is Spinning Guild. I’ll be working on teal top that might get plied with the gold.

  1. mmmmm! That Merino Tencel was even prettier in person. I love the colors 🙂 I’m so impressed with all your spinning, the recycled denim looks great too – I’ve got some cotton I really want to try, but I’m nervous. I’m officially inspired – after I finish the little blue thingie (tonight? tomorrow?) now I’m fighting boredom with the linen stitch – must finish quick!! I WILL dedicate some more time to my wheel. I will.

    Happy Friday!! (Thank Gord.)
