Odds and Ends

And now, for a general spinning update, and a chance to show off the projects that have been languishing in my closet due to an influx of other distractions (cough, cough, the Walking Wheel, cough) . . . Here is the Flamenco fiber, almost all spun into singles. (On the drop spindle, top whorl.)

Oh, and if you’re wondering about the twins, I didn’t want to wind off an entire spindle full, so my dad made me a second one and I spun the other half of the fiber on that. An extra spindle is a very handy thing.

And here is my Wensleydale (first quality) roving spun into a thick single on the big, bottom-whorl spindle. I plan to dye this either chocolate brown or turquoise, then ply it with thin pink silk.

The following single is a blend of black wool, silk, and black Angelina (sparkly stuff), spun on the Saxony wheel. I’ve got another, oh, six ounces to spin. Eventually. It’s hard to go back to something you’ve already played with when there are new possibilites hovering before your face.
