I’ve been very remiss in my spinning lately, so much so that it has been over three months since I’ve actually sat down to spin! Sigh … I think I must have been in a rather fiber “funk”, which I go through every once in a while and I’m sure many of you understand and have been there yourself now and then.
After seeing a lovely post by Stacey over at the Weekend Knitter Blog of the the fiber she plied this week and seeing my dear fiber sister’s continued use of her handspun for warm cozy knits on her blog , I decided it was time to dust of the wheel (yes, I actually had to do that … shaking head in shame) and continue with the spinning I started several months ago.
So the last two morning I’ve been working on my lovely Shetland and Silk blend that my friend Elseline sent me from England. This particular braid of fiber is from Freyalyn’s Hand-Dyed Fibres , which was purchased at a fiber fest in Wales earlier this year.
I’m really starting to love the deep rich color of this fiber and it has a sort of a rich raspberry color. Els, you would be proud of me ~ I will be plying this lovely creation by the weekend!
I’m rather pleased with how this blend is spinning up and look forward to having another yardage for a nice cozy scarf.
What have you been spinning lately?
