Two of my resent acquisitions, a mahagony top whorl spindle, and wool/alpaca roving!
I simply love this colorway. It is quite ME-ish. I plan on making a Scarfigan. The one in the newest Knit Scene.
Stay posted for more pics. I have 8 ounces to spin up, plus a half dozen other projects going on so I am going to take my time on this one. I don't need my beautiful scarfigan until the fall.
And thank you little brother, for this spindle! It is gorgeous! The spindle weighs about 1 ounce and spins super fast, and it doesn't wobble at all.
I spun up Ocean Splendor 2 on my top whorl spindle. As a reminder Ocean SPlendor 2 is one of the corriedale rovings I hand painted. I spun it very fine, and then plied 2 strands togther. It isn't quite lace weight, which is what I was shooting for. But I am happy with it. I have another shawl pattern in "The Knitter's Book Of Wool" that I am going to make for MYSELF! Yay!
