So, that was the end to a pretty uneventful weekend of not doing much other than spinning and us watching movies - too hot to be outside doing anything. Felt kind of like a slug but sometimes that's ok, I tend to be hard on myself if I'm idle so this was a good thing that I could handle frittering my time like that.
Got the fiber I had started spinning last week plyed - plyed silk ribbons in it - but now I'm at a standstill on it because I want to put an additional ply of rayon embroidery thread with beads on it. I overplyed thinking when I then went back the other direction of the ply with the beads that it would fix the overply and be balanced - not! Tryed several different samples, not happy with results so am at a standstill on that project complete with beads on the rayon thread laying on the loveseat. So, I moved on to spinning something new on the other wheel - a crazy lumpy/bumpy roving of romney and mohair - been in my stash for a number of years. Now I know why - it's so rough feeling going through my hands. I'll stick with it though, I've got around 2 pounds of it. I like the colors but not so sure I'll like the resulting yarn - will be able to tell once I ply and block it. At worst it can be used for felting projects like nice thick knitted felted slippers.
