Remember how much I loved January? Well, it's continuing into February. These days of not doing very much have been a lot of fun. Not only have I been knitting, but I've also been spinning.
I've had singles on my bobbins since June, waiting to be plied. Finally, I got around to it and plied it together. Purty, huh? The Roving was from Pucker Brush farm that I got from MDSW.
Since I had the spinning wheel out and everything (and what a hard job that was. Moving the wheel from the corner of the room to the middle. AND putting a sheet underneath. PHEW! I'm exhausted.), I decide to spin up some more.
This is again from MDSW, but from 2010.
I spun this tighter, and plied it looser, with the idea that it would give me a balanced yarn. It worked for the blue roving, but this one turned out not-so-good for some reason. Anyway, it was fun and I'm sure I can make a funky looking hat out of it.
