spinning a yarn


Sheep 2 Shoe in Valenscummy. I started this right before we left Port Ludlow and am spinning merrily along. My goal is sock yarn.  I’m pretty happy with what I’ve spun so far

I’ve got this lovely BFL Boobie 1 that feels very oceany to me.


I spun it uneven and maybe even a little slubby and plied it kind of loose. So I think it would make a really lovely something to have around ones neck.

I also have these 3 smallish skein of silk blends that I’m pretty much in love with and am contemplating a weaving project for these three.


This afternoon after my to do list is ta done, I plan on sitting on the back deck with a whole lot of quiet, some iced tea, my lovely red nasturtiums ( aren’t they pretty?) and spin to my hearts content.


Have a great weekend!

    Sounds fabulous Tina!!  I want to be able to spin well someday. 

    Glad you are getting some “down time” after the retreat.  Check your email for one from me!

    Oh I am so jealous!  I am still knee deep in paperwork that has to be processed before the weekend is out.  And I erally want to get in some TdF spinning at some point.  A few lovely silk blends that a certain friend recently dyed up….

    What a wonderful way to spend the weekend(if you like spinning)! I have yet to be bitten by the spinning bug. However, I’m knitting away like a mad fool in over 30C temperatures. It’s so warm that I’m putting my red wine in the fridge for awhile to bring it to cellar temperature. May your weekend be everything you want it to be. Cheers and red wine, Hazel.
