Spinning white is a little on the boring side. Especially after all of the playing with colour that I have been doing. But I am enjoying spinning it none the less. Leigh suggested that I keep working with colour else where. I am definitely taking that as sound advice. I also dug out my shawl pattern and reread it. And I am going to need a few more yards of white than I thought I would. About 300 more. I really don't know where I got the idea that I needed about 450 yards for the shawl, but I was off a bit. And it needs to be a bit finer than what I had assumed. No worries. The more that I have to spin, the longer I can put off that cast on. With provisional yarn. Oh, the learning that is going to take place then!
And here is the merino that was going to be part of the shawl and is now just a lovely bundle of yarn. I am quite pleased with it. I split the roving far finer that I ever had before in attempts to get shorter colour runs. And in the process, I found that it is easier to spin finer with a finer split roving. Who knew? Oh, most of you? Chalk it up to more learning on my part. I'm learning all sorts of things about spinning these days.
