What's On the Wheel

Michelle asked if I would consider doing a weekly blog post on my spinning, in much the same fashion that I do the Masters Monday posts. I pondered the idea for a while before deciding that for me, the weekly posts about spinning won't work.

The main reason is that I am a one-thing-at-a-time spinner and, wanting enough to actually DO something with when I'm finished, I spin large amounts of most of the preparations that I begin.

Like this for instance. This is part of about 2 POUNDS of blended batts that I am drum carding and spinning. It's a combination of black superwash merino, bright lime green merino, and a blue/green firestar. I have no idea what I'll make with it when I'm done, but it will be a long while before I card, spin, and ply it all ---- months likely, as I don't spin every day.

That type of long term focus would make for very boring weekly spinning reports.

Ah well, while I would have loved seeing your spinning every week, you make a very valid point. In any case, your current spinning project is gorgeous! I think I'll break out some of my roving and spin for a bit. Thanks again for the inspiration!

Wow, beautiful stuff! Almost doesn't need to be spun... it's so gorgeous the way it is.

Very pretty... I love the sparkle of the green, just the right amount.
