Round and Round

 The spindles have been as busy as the wheels lately and it's not even the TdF. My trip to the MDSW has lit a fiber frenzy. The first spindle of next year's shawl fiber is being wound off.

 I've been having fun with this cotton that I picked up last year at the SVFF. It's very fiddly and slow going but I like a challenge.

I've been collecting these Cormo singles since the 2013 MDSW. Now that is a fleece that just keeps on giving.


  1. Wow! They are all beautiful. I don't know how you have the patience to spin cotton though.

  2. I always wondered what it would be like to spin cotton. It will be interesting to see how that turns out. Sounds challenging.

  3. LOL the first thing I thought was, Did TDF start already?!?

    The colorways on your spindle are gorgeous and so perfect for summer! Enjoy

  4. Oh, the quiet solitude of a spinning hour....lovely results and a great collection of fiber. Did you watch the Cotton Clouds' tutorial/video on spinning cotton on the wheel? Great advice that makes the shift from wool to cotton just click!

  5. Ooooh, cormo! That is going to knit up to something heavenly!

  6. Look at all those beautiful bits of fluff!
