And Then There Were Three (and a half).
I am so close to the end of this fiber, I can taste it. It’s now finally all been spun up, I just need to ply the singles that are currently on the spindle. I might’ve been a wee bit optimistic for my second project, because this is eight full ounces of fiber. Fortunately for me, I chose a silk blend, which was much easier to spin than my first project, which was primarily merino. This stuff almost spins itself.
I also think that my tiny skeins look rather like bunnies, and I almost can’t get over how cute they are. This might mean that I am somewhat of a simple human.
Aren’t the singles for this really gorgeous? The different blues are all fairly blended in the final product, and while I am completely okay with that, I do like seeing a bit more of the subtle variations. I also have to say, I am in love with silk. It just feels so luxurious and wonderful. I find that I am trolling Etsy, looking at all kinds of different roving with different fiber blends. However, I have purchased enough fiber for my next few spinning projects, and I don’t want to overwhelm myself by getting too much stuff, because spinning is a pretty slow process. I do love it though. I think a lot of us knit and spin because it’s such a relaxing process. I’m naturally a very high anxiety person, and I find that it is so for me. Spinning especially calms me down beautifully. Plus, it’s incredibly satisfying to take a pile of fluff and turn it into yarn. And then, you get to do this.
Just a totally normal picture of me smooshing the yarn bunnies on my face. As one does.
