I haven't blogged over the last few days because a) I've been quite busy dyeing wool, b) reading about someone's slow progress spinning 100gr of wool is about as fascinating as watching paint dry. So I thought I'd give it all to you in one easily digested slab!
I've just been continuing on with the Falklands, and now it's finished!
It wasn't really a long spin, just drawn out over several days.
I really think I might have spent more time on the computer than I have spinning this week.
Once I had the two bobbins of singles spun, it was an easy matter to just n-ply them off in a couple of hours last night. So my progress continues! There are more photos available on my Flickr Photostream.
Below you can see the finished yarn, which is lovely and cushy, and some spindle spun hanky silk and Ink 21 micron merino plied together on my spindle - made for me by Ken. The spindle spun is part of a project that has been creeping along for months. Hopefully it will end with a divine garment all painstakingly spun on my increasingly large stable of spindles!
