I like to spin while I watch TV and my lack of spinning shows that I am in a show hole. I had been plying some singles that I finished while watching Mindhunter on Netflix but it ended before the singles did.
I ended up plying along to some of the worst holiday movies cable has to offer. Thank goodness I have good movies on DVD but the DVD player is on the TV in the card making room and there is no room for a wheel in that mess.
Those singles are from this fiber I picked up at the SVFF. It's Merino and silk from Dragonfly fibers in the festival colorway. It's been a real pleasure to work with.
It got a good soak and a twacking. The silk in it makes it very soft but very odd feeling. It feels a bit like cotton.
It turned out nicely but there's not much yardage. It's going to be a challenge to find a project for it.
Then there is Finely. I've been spinning this same fleece for three years now.
And there is still so much more to do. Finley is a Shetland fleece I picked up somewhere or other. I've got no real plans for it other than get it done. I think my big fleece washing days are over. I don't have the attention span anymore to spin the same thing over and over.
My handspun knitting project is coming along slowly but surely. My goal is to always be knitting something with yarn I have spun. I've got to use up this tub of handspun one way or another or there's no point in spinning anymore, right?
Finally, look at what showed up in the mail. Surprise! Yummy Huckleberry goodies all the way from Washington State plus an adorable needle holder that went right into good use. You just know I am going to have to design a Huckleberry Honey soap now for spring. Thanks so much Betsy-you've inspired a project!
