Spin

22 December, 2008 at 9:54 pm (knitting, spinning)

Over here in post-project letdown (again—didn’t I just experience this?), I’ve decided to get back to a little spindling.

Nothing fancy, just some straight up merino which will make a lovely three-ply sock yarn. I’m spinning it on one of my own spindles—.8oz, polymer clay whorl. There’s a similar one up in the shop, and I’ve got a whole line of polymer clay spindles that I hope to have up and ready by the middle of next month, if not sooner. The poor shop will probably look a little empty ’til then, though.

Other than that there’s not too much going on, except some gift stuff that I can’t share ’til the end of the week. And I cast on for some rainbow mittens today

but I think the yarn I started with is too pink to be my purple. We’ll see. (Anyone got any purple Rowanspun 4-ply they want to part with?)

    Mmm, yummy new yarn. 🙂
    But sorry, no Rowanspun here. I like that purple, though, so if you don’t want it…
    Hope it turns out the way you want!

    Lovely spindle — and spindling, of course!
