Spinning myself dizzy..........

When I go to my spinning group Sam always tell me to have a good time and not to spin myself should actually be gabbing myself to exhaustion!  I've been working on this handspun for a long time as I've only spun on it when in the group and that's in-between catching up with friends. I finally finished up the 2 bobbins I had spun on my Majacraft Little Gem and last night I plied them on my Hansen mini-spinner (electric spinner). I got 504 yards of fingering to DK weight yarn. It was spun from Sporfarm (The Dalles, OR) batts of 2/3 Shetland/1/3 Fine Wool in the Sea Mist colorway.  Her batts are so pretty, such soft colors......not as soft as I would have liked once spun but still very lovely.  I'd give a link to her website except she doesn't have one but she does always have a booth at Black Sheep Gathering and Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. Not sure what this will grow up to be.......will sit and visit with the other handspun on the shelf for a while.  Now to pick out the next fiber to spin..........maybe some of my own hand-dyed.

  1. I really like those subtle colors. It looks a little like an opal to me.
