Spin

I haven’t been doing a whole lot of knitting lately that isn’t for designs which I haven’t released yet. Instead, when I have some downtime (free time? What is this nonsense?), I have been spinning. I’m a bit out of practice but it’s getting better as I go.

I’ve almost filled my spindle and I realized that I’ve never actually had to take the singles off the spindle before getting through all of my fibre (I’ve got at least 3/4 of this bag left). I guess I’ll just wind it off (onto the ball winder perhaps) until I’m ready to ply. The only plying I’ve ever done is Andean, which is done from 2 ends of the same ball, though, so I guess I’ll have to learn another method!

I also received a lovely skein of yarn in the mail the other day… I won the yarn and the Botanical Knits e-book in a recent giveaway Tanis had. The yarn is TFA Yellow Label DK in the new colourway ‘sprout’, and it is so gorgeous. I’ll need to take some more photos of it because this one just doesn’t do it justice.
