Look! I’m finally posting again! :)
I’ve been knitting madly away (almost done with the body of a man’s guernsey, I’ll post pics later), but I haven’t found the time to spin. I signed up for Spinzilla (I’m PSYCHED), but I figured I should, you know, train or something. So tonight I set out to spin up the second half of the pale blue alpaca/merino braid (bottom bobbin).
I had so much fun that I went ahead and plied the Brown Jacob that I spun ages ago. The middle two bobbins (super-full, aren’t they? I need to get better about regulating that…) are a 2 ply, and then I had too much left on one bobbin of singles to throw away (also need to get better about that), so I chain-plied on the top bobbin.
I’d forgotten how delightfully absorbing spinning is. I spun for over 2 hours, and I didn’t even notice that it was late and my back was aching until I was taking the final bobbin off the wheel. This bodes ill (or well?) for Spinzilla…
