Spinning for Pleasure
It's been too long since I did some regular spinning. On the back of my knitting efforts yesterday, I cleared off several bobbins. Next step was a good dose of spinning for pleasure. I'd picked up a bundle of hand-dyed wool-silk on a recent visit to the Guild. the visit was officially to the library, but there were some delays and I found myself in the Craft Outlet . . . you know how it goes. Good news, the fibre never made it into the "stash". Here it is spun and plied up with a strand of silk filament. I'm about to wash the skein and then it will be ready to knit. Since I turned on the heater for the first time yesterday, I figure it must be time for a new scrap of woolly comfort to wrap around my neck.
