Wheel Wednesday-Five Months
It’s been five months since the Giant and I arrived in the PNW, it also marked the five month mark of having a spinning project on the wheel. I picked up a braid of Moonrover destash pretty quickly after we made the move and once I had my wheels back (along with the rest of our furniture) I started spinning and I am still working on the fiber.
Now this destash came with little info, aside from the fact that it was SW merino and Nylon and oh so pretty. Foolishly I didn’t think to weigh the braid before hand, but based on the research of others it would appear it’s about five ounces. Last night I decided to spin for a little while, and finally remembered to weigh the remaining fiber. Any guesses on how much is left?
If you said a little over half you would be right. (insert face palm here.) I suppose I could chalk it up to not feeling the greatest and therefore not spinning much, or I could even explain that it is a pretty thin spin and I am trying really hard not to over spin the singles…but the fact remains I have still spun under half of five ounces in five months.
The fact is it’s a whole lot of factors involved, but despite the amount left I decided it was time for some photos of the spin. (It helps that we had a fire in the fireplace, trying to get decent photos out here hasn’t been easy with all the grey skies and rain (not that I am complaining!)
It’s difficult to see in this photo but there are actually a few shades of greens and blues in this braid.
Luckily it is still an enjoyable spin…heck I suppose I could say I am just prolonging the fun. That sounds legit, right?
