It’s funny…

…how a new toy can help you ramp up the spinning production. ;o)

Or maybe it’s the absence of a family member that’s allowing me to concentrate…or perhaps the looming fiber festivals making me want to clear out the stash to make room for new…? Possibly it’s a combination of all those things ;o)

No matter the reason, I have new yarn to show you all:

Singles on the New Toy

Singles on my new Will Taylor Lazy Kate

Lazy Kate

Bird’s eye view (please ignore the ancient carpeting – no amount of vacuuming can get it 100% clean) – this kate can do up to three plies. I Navajo plied these singles so I’m not using it to its full potential but having that single coming up out of the same place really helped when I was reaching for the next length. In fact, I think I set a personal record for plying 4oz of singles. It only took me a day and a half to spin this up (I am a frustratingly slow spinner).


The finished product.

This is the July offering from the Spunky Club – 4oz of Shetland in the colorway ‘Celebration’. I managed to squeak out 232 yards of a sport/dk weight.

So, speaking of Fiber Fests – I’ll be at VT Sheep & Wool this Saturday so if you see me wandering around feel free to say, ‘hi!’ (I don’t bite…at least, I don’t unless you’re touching a fleece that I want…*cough*). I’m getting a day pass from RR since we’re going to the Lake George Car show this weekend. ;o)

  1. Lovely colours! OK, so I understand wanting to make room for new stash, but now you have more yarn. Does that mean you have lots of room for yarn?

  2. Your yarn looks delicious! You have such wonderful fiber toys too. Not only do you own about a million wheels, but you also have a sock knitting machine and now this amazing Lazy Kate. Forget the Joneses, I want to keep up with Jessalu! Hope you have fun at the VT fiber festival and that you bump into lots of fellow bloggers.

  3. LOVE the kate & spinning and hope you had a great time at VT! So very sorry to miss it this year to spend time in Florida with the family. And you know I ain’t lying when I say that.
