Spinning…

…I do that sometimes.  ;o)

Since I’m not 100% happy with the knitting these days I’ve been spending some time at the wheel.  Here is a peek at my ‘singles basket’ – this is where I put my bobbins of singles waiting to be plied:

Singles Basket

Waiting patiently from left to right we have:  two bobbins of Crown Mtn Farms Corrie Pencil Roving in ‘Tibetan Dreams’; two bobbins of Crown Mtn Farms Superwash Merino in ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ and hiding between them a bobbin of Spunky Eclectic Superwash Merino in ‘Grand Opening’.  (Thanks to blog-free Manise for helping me figure out that last one, I couldn’t remember the colorway to save my life)

I should be able to get some of this plied up over the weekend since Risa arrives on Friday and when she’s here it turns into a spinfest.  ;o)  She’s coming up for the Massachusetts S&W fest this weekend – we’ll be there, will you?

  1. I think I am going to spend some of my holiday weekend spinning-I haven’t spun since Labor Day when I fell & messed up my wrist. But I miss it and I really want to get this alpaca spun so I can decide what it wants to be. Thanks for the beautiful inspiration Jess! xoxo

    P.S. I survived the waterboarding ;OP

    The Blue Suede Shoes are gorgeous! No more S&W festivals for me until the kids are older and can be left at home.

    I thought that bobbin looked familiar! Glad to be able to help you solve the colorway mystery. :-) See you on Saturday. 3 more sleeps!

  4. RAAWR! That’s some teh-sexay spinning. I think one of the ocean colored bobbins would look fabulous plied with the grand opening. Mmm.

    I’ll be honking at you, and I mean LEANING ON THE HORN, on our way past. Consider yourselves warned. I’m sure your neighbors will love it.

  5. Gorgeous singles. I’ve been spinning a little lately, but I don’t have near the finished product that you’ve acquired. Great colors too! Hope you have fun this weekend.

  6. Lovely spinning, you’ve been busy! Have fun at the S&W this weekend. I miss the East Coast the most during festival season (which is pretty much all year).
