Fiber Arts Friday: Spinning
I’ve been spinning, and it’s lovely! I had been almost aching to get back to the spinning wheel.
I spun this singles yarn from a mini batt I carded at Yarn School earlier this year. It's so soft and squooshy! Not sure what I'll make with this yet, I've got about 100 yards.
This is merino, from roving that I dyed at the fiber festival in Iowa this summer. It's about 2 ounces, and almost 100 yards of 2-ply. So lofty! I think this wants to be fingerless mitts, I just need to find the right pattern.
I’m working on a larger spinning project now, about 6 ounces of merino. I’m into my last ounce, and then I’ll 2-ply it, hopefully for sport-weight socks. It’s not ideal sock yarn (only two ply, not superwash, no nylon), but it’s what this yarn needs to be.
I really love spinning, can you tell?
