Off the spindle
With the cooler weather of the last few days, we’ve found life has slowed down a bit, and we’ve been hanging around the house more and more.Â The girls have been playing more quiet games,Â and we’ve all been reading through our latest haul from the library. Â I’ve gotten a chance to finish spinning some merino/mohair roving bought at a spin-in ages ago.Â The twist has been set (which really brought out the loft in the yarn – it’s so fluffy!), and these singles are ready to knit.
Also off the another spindle are the last few ounces of 85 wool/15 mohair Brown Sheep mill end roving (1 lb total takes a while on drop spindle, so I’ve been doing it in batches).Â The final product is a dk weight – some careful dividing of the roving resulted in hanks that are in strikingly different shades of white/brown/grey/black.
Now, to get knitting with them…
If you have any recent spinning, please share the link with me – I’d love to see what you’re working on.Â Thanks!
