I spun a 978yd skein on my top whorl drop spindle and then set the completed skein aside for awhile until I decided what to make with it. My sister suggested this shawl, even though I had already made it. I had just enough yardage, and I absolutely LOVE it in the handspun yarn! It is so airy and delicate.
Up close of the laceA big thank you to my sister for taking these photos for me! We had a lovely photo shoot out in the woods.
High above, the hot summer sky.Here are a few of my current in-progress and just finished spinning projects.
I have been spinning up some samples of the merino roving that I dyed in May. I was planning on keeping most of it for my personal use, but now after some reflection I'll probably end up trying to sell it. That will be a first for me, I have always kept my handspun for my own use. It is such a luxury to knit with handspun!
I'm slowly working on spinning up my birthday fiber. It is a beautifully soft blend of Merino & Bamboo. I am spinning it super thin for a very fine lace-weight yarn. I am planning on making a shawl, though as of yet I have no idea what pattern I will use!
More merino roving being spun.What about you? What have you been working on this week, or this month? I would love to hear all about it!
Have a blessed week, my friends!
