Surprise Package

 Since the Tour, the Ladybug had been sitting empty and I felt bad  about it. That little corner of the room, when it is not being used for frantic competitive spinning, is where I do my daily fiber meditation. Spinning a lovely commercially processed fiber is so calming that I could fall asleep doing it and I look forward to that quiet time every evening.

 I picked out the next project and was surprised when I opened the pretty braid up. It was not at all what I expected.

 You can see it better here. One half of the length is green/brown and the other half is blue/turquoise/purple. All lovely colors but I had no idea how to split it for spinning. You wouldn't want half of a project one color and the other half another. Hmmmm....

 I decided to see what would happen if I spin one half starting at one end and the other half starting at the other and then plying it the opposite way.

I probably won't remember all that halfway through the process but in the meantime I am just going to enjoy the spin. After fighting all those Merino locks, this is like heaven.


  1. I love the look of it already! Wow. Purple and green are a favorite combination always for me.
    good luck

  2. I think that is an excellent plan. I love the way you've lined up the colors!
