Yes, There is Spinning
I am spinning some of the fiber I bought at Stitches West. I split the fiber in half (roughly) the long way and planned to spin one half and then the other half and ply them together for a two ply yarn.
As I spin up the fiber I am rethinking that plan. I would like to preserve the beautiful hand dyed colors and thought I might be able to match up the colors when I ply each half together, but I don't think that will work out as well as I thought. I am now thinking a Navajo ply would be the best way to get the yarn I want out of this fiber. I am hoping for enough to knit a pair of socks.
I had a wonderful Mother's day yesterday, Paul took the boys dirt biking for two days to give me some downtime, it was lovely but I found myself missing them. PJ and I had a lovely time planting some flowers and jumping on the trampoline.
