Just finished spinning an ounce of my current spinning WIP.
It’s called Agate and its a merino, superwash merino and silk blend by Three Waters Farm. I bought 8 ounces of this colourway and its a dream to spin, though it’s a lot to spin too and on a drop spindle it’s going to take me a long time. I decided to spin it as a fingering weight fractal two ply so this is part of the short repeats ply and since my drop spindles don’t hold all that much I will be making the yarn in 4 2 ounce skeins.
It took me far too long to wind it onto my new/old bobbin (like 2 hours-ish), I really hope that winding both my singles to be plied onto it will be worth my trouble when I ply it and that the singles will wind off semi-evenly.
I think I’m going to take a bit of a break in between this though because I’m getting a bit bored, I think I’m going to spin some dark brown coopworth wool that’s been in my stash for a while. I’m thinking a worsted weight singles yarn would be a nice change from the very fine singles I’ve been spinning now.
