OK so it’s Saturday, but I’m just getting this thing set up and you can’t expect me to wait an entire week to post about the fibery goodness I’ve got cooking up! I have a bit of a backlog that I need to get posted rightthissecond.
Last month we had some gorgeous days – the rains had passed and it wasn’t blazing hot yet, and I got in some great spinning time just sitting out back in the garden as the kids played their hearts out. Here are the results on the spindle:
And then here it is all plied up:
I think now that I see them both I actually prefer the single ply, but the finished plied version did get lots of oohs and aahs at The City Flea last week.
I mean two weeks ago… wow summer does really fly by!
I even had one friendly passerby make the awesome suggestion of using handspun to create necklaces. I am now, of course, brooding over some future project ideas.
I’ve just added Harvest (above) a squishy soft and superbulky SW Merino Wool, along with lots of other new handspun to the shop. Wait till you see the gorgeous stuff I spun while sitting in my booth at The City Flea! Can’t wait to get them plied and finished.
