Fiber Friday

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.
