I finally found some good daylight in which to photograph my recent spinning
Two skeins of lumpy bumpy merino from The Yarn Yarn’s Merino pencil roving, and a small skein of the remaining pink to go with it.
I had a multicoloured roving, which I spun thick and thin and well-slubbed. And I had a toning pink, which I spun very much finer. Plying the two together made the two big skeins, 138 gms total. The remainder made the pink skein.
I think a hat?
I am calling this yarn Delightful – because it is. It certainly fills me with delight and I feel like it is a major achievement.
The fourth skein is from the Shetland X fleece that I dyed back in January. I am calling this one Backaskaill as the colours recall the colour of the sea in Backaskaill Bay.
Aren’t the colours gorgeous?
It is another adventure in thick-and-thin. The thick single is spun on Constance, my Trad, and the very fine single is spun on Hebbie, my Haldane.
This skein is washed and smells as good as it looks (Eucalan!)
Best of all? Absolutely no bias in this skein 🙂
I have two more bobbins of fat ready to ply just as soon as I have spun sufficient thin singles to go with it.
