My Wednesday Night

June 4, 2015

was spent catching up on podcasts and crafting. What kind of crafting you ask? Well first I did a little knitting on my June socks, the yarn is ridiculously soft and kind of slippery which is so not what I expected. I don’t dislike it, but it does mean I need to adjust my approach to knitting just a little bit.

Secondly I opted for a little spinning. I have been slowly (and I mean slowly) working my way through some fiber I picked up way back in December (it was probably started in January to be fair.) It is The Dyeing Arts BFL in the Absinthe colorway. I have been spinning the singles on my beloved Bossie and as I near the end I am trying to decide if I want to ply on a (different) spindle which would be a first for me, or if I want to go ahead and ply on Beatrice (my Prelude.) I am thinking I want to do a 2 ply since the singles are so thin I should get pretty good yardage out of all of it, but at the same time since they are so thin, maybe I should try a three-ply or even a chain ply to keep the color repeats….decisions decisions.

  1. I want to learn to spin. I do not have the room for a spinning wheel but need to look at other options

    • A drop spindle can be a minimal investment and doesnt have to take up much room. I would recommend checking out a few drop spindle videos online to see what you think. Let me know if you have questions, i can try to help 🙂

  2. Boy, I really need to learn to spin! Sounds delightful!
