Just finished spinning and plying the silk/cashmere mix from longdrawjames.
Just need to find the first of three skeins and then I will give them a bath together, can’t wait to count yardage and then pick out a project.
In other news, my green Rock Island was in the post today, should hopefully be there on Friday morning for my mum!
I have a picture of the remaining fibre to spin that you have seen pictures of, I’ll post that soon, I think I will ply it the same way as I have done this one, spin the single then ply it, rather than doing it on the fly!
…apologies for the absence, things have been hectic over here. For some reason tumblr didn’t post my most recent post for over a week!
I have literally just finished spinning up my singles of the Mandacrafts that I featured in the last post, all 200g of it! The falkland it is on is just AMAZING to spin with!
I spun up the whole second half today and I’m desperate to start plying it tonight but I should probably leave it to rest on the bobbin since the first one have been there for quite a while and I want to do a good job on plying!
Hoping to get a good amount of yardage from 200g but we shall see, the falkland tends to poof up huge amounts when it is washed!
Step away from the wheel, enough spinning for one day!
There are a lack of updates at the moment due to the fact that I have lost internet connection at home currently, and BT are taking their sweet time in trying to fix it. To make matters worse I am also out of data for the next 2 weeks on my phone…mainly due to the idiocy of me trying to watch 2 Knitgirllls episodes back to back…which ate my allowance…lesson learnt!
I caught the Loop! update the other day, and the three bumps arrived yesterday, I am TOTALLY in love with the Sari silk bump, absolutely gorgeous. That was the one that I was least convinced about to be honest and the one that accidentally found its way into my cart!
I have to say I like them all, but the one I am least keen about, suprisingly, in the Tiger’s Eye which looked phenomenal in the picture, but that I wasn’t particularly amazed with when I saw it in real life. I’m going to let it sit for a while because I think it might be because I just feel so hard for the other colours or my Toffee bump hard similar colours…
I’ll get some pictures up for you guys so you can see what I am on about!
