Spinning is so much fun! I finished another 300+ yard skein on Mermaid Dreams in my effort to procrastinate a bit more on the start of my lace shawl. I'll get there some day.
In the mean time, I have also been spinning with weaving in mind. I wanted to make some more slubby scarves. To the left is Arabian Nights and on the right is a new colour way that I am thinking of calling Carnival. Unless someone else can come up with a better name. Any suggestions? It is reds, yellows, oranges, and a touch of purple. It reminds me of the bright lights and loud music associated with a carnival ride.
And here is another cake of Water Lilies. Each cake is about 8 ounces and will produce one scarf. Thankfully my loom is small enough and set up so that I only have a few grams of loom waste. After all of that work, I would hate to end up throwing precious hand spun away.
And speaking of precious hand spun, I don't know if I showed you my finished skein of the cochineal silk.
4 ounces, 200 (ish) yards. Unintentionally slubby. I had a few, ahem, problems, with drafting. This was so different to spin from wool that I can hardly compare them. If anyone has any tips for spinning silk, I'd be happy to hear them. Plans for this little bundle of beauty? Nope. I just plan on enjoying the look of it for a while. It is not going in the stash. It is definitely going on display!
