Spindle Spun Laceweight

Not sure what this will become, likely something from one of my lace books, but until I get a few other projects finished up around here it will have to mellow in my "stash".


50/50 Silk/merino, 2 ply, fine laceweight. 2 singles from different but related Fleece Artist colourways spun separately on my spindle and then plied together using my wheel.

I found your blog via the ringsurf site. Lovely to meet you.

Wow. Beautiful.

Ooh, ooh, pretty... I tend to spin thicker but knit the thinner stuff--kind of a disconnect there...

Thanks Nicole. I love spinning laceweight on the spindle. I can't do it for hours at a time, like I can with a wheel, but I keep the spindle in the kitchen and spin for little snippets of time whenever I can. It eventually adds up!
