I need to start spinning..and stop buying!..

I’ve turned into the type of spinner that buys all these gorgeous fibres and then doesn’t have enough time on the weekend to ACTUALLY spin them!..

So no more wasting most of my weekend on Instagram..because I spend a heck of a lot of time looking at spinning, knitting, crochet, weaving etc that other fibre artists out there post.

So what did I buy… I bought some gorgeous handdyed fibres from The Shepherds Hut ..some are shetland and some are merino/bamboo..

Love em..now to spin them!

new fibres and my latest spin

this yarn was spun with my catandsparrow fibre club rolags some finnx fleece from kathys fibres and merino I dyed…

next up I’ve bought more fibre from New Zealand from the lovely Heavenly Wools…I’ll post the fibre breeds and names when I spin them.. Have a great Sunday!βœŒπŸ’›

Sunday spinning

I went and visited my friend Kathy at her art studio yesterday. I’ve been so busy and so has she so we haven’t seen each other in a few months so we had plenty of gossip to share! πŸ˜‰…

So while I was there I managed to get most of the rolags from my last post spun and I added some assorted blue finnx fleece to the bobbin as well. I’m going to ply it with some other fibres that I’m spinning tonight.

Day 8 Tour de Fleece 2018

Finally I have daylight and time to post a pic of my first finished yarn for TDF 2018. Heres Lucinda.. she measures 220.5meters, 12 to 13 wpi, weighs 90grams.

I 2plyed from 2 bobbins, one bobbin still has some single leftovers on it so I’ll add that in the next braid of this same fibre colourway that I spin, but I’m going to prep the next one different before spinning it.

Recent spins..
