I've been plying but it hasn't been what I really need to be plying. I am still spinning the singles for this year's MDSW shawl. That clock is really ticking. It's been such slow going that I'm thinking this may be the last year I do this. I've been performing this little ritual for years so I really don't need anymore shawls. I need to start recycling the ones I already have. That by the way, is my broken Golding spindle that I managed to glue back together very nicely. It works perfectly again. I wish I could glue myself back so easily. I still am in a world of hurt from my recent tumble.
What I have been plying is the fiber from Wandering Cat Studios which was a lovely gift from Valerie.
This is what it started out as way back in September. It was a perfect early autumn spin but it was doomed to sit out the holidays when the wheels get packed away.
Now it's looking like this. Pretty.
It took me a while to get my plying mojo back. It's been a while.
I can't wait to swatch it and see what it wants to be.
Any ideas? Do you know any good patterns that play nice with handspun?
