I have been frequenting the ‘ol spinning wheel quite a bit the last few days. Ever since our first spinning group met on Saturday the 23rd, I can’t seem to get spinning off the brain. I have two and a half skeins ready to be dyed, one and a half bobbins full of beautiful pre-dyed roving, and two skeins waiting to be liberated from their coils and knit into something fab. I have knit up one of my very first navajo plyed skeins up though. Their new body is a pair of fingerless mits. So pretty. So far, all I have spun with is Merino and Corriedale. The Merino is in the fingerless mits, as well as the two dyed skeins, and the corriedale are the two blank skeins and the pre dyed roving. Well, enough of the talk, time for pictures.
These are my fingerless gloves. They will be first since they are made from the oldest of the skeins.
And next comes the sister skein of the mits. I spun and dyed this lot at the same time, but the colors are more vibrant because they got more time in the cooker.
And now for the Kool Aid dyed skein. It’s done in Cherry, only one pack, however if I had it to do over, I would definately use two for a brighter color.
Onto the undyed Skeins. Lovely pure yarn. I’m still trying to get the hang of spinning smaller, but these are definately getting close.
And a close up of the blanks.
And last but not least, my baby. The Ashford Joy, double treadle, with some lovely dyed roving on it.
And a close up of my even smaller spun yarn.
The end. 😀 Enjoy!
