I’ve been getting to my spinning wheel more these days and I love it! It’s a nice change from knitting and my arms/shoulders thank me for the break.
I have my wheel close to my desk now, so I can really pull it over to spin for short bursts if I feel like it. I had a baggie of this rather unremarkable but fun to spin Shetland that I just really wanted to spin up, and I ended up doing the whole thing in an afternoon.
Fast and squishy. 65 grams, 200 yards of 2ply.
And I finally finished this super soft, silky blend from Into the Whirled – it’s merino, superwash merino, and silk, in the colourway “Candy Bracelet”. Took awhile to spin but it should come up in fun stripes.
It’s 370 yards of 3ply (chain plied), so I might make some socks or something out of it. Thanks Brenna!
I’m trying to work on spinning down my stash a bit. Spun yarn takes up a little less space than fibre, right?
