TdF 2014: Day 9- Bulky Yarns!

TdF 2014: Day 9- Bulky Yarns!

Oops, was a little MIA for a few days. I warned you that TdF spinning would be interrupted by working on the home remodel and indeed it was. There was painting to be done, disliked and repainted. Yes, lots of fun! There was also a movie to be seen (finally got to see Maleficent). And I may have run a Mom & Me race with my daughter this morning… whatevs ;-)

Namely: finish our dining room, spackle the kitchen and finish painting the upstairs hall. While I wish I could spend all day catching up on bad TV and spinning away on my Lendrum, it’s just not in the cards.

That said, I found a couple hours this afternoon to…

TdF 2014: Day 3- Plying

TdF 2014: Day 3- Plying

Still spinning away over here. First up I finished the “Yellow Snow” rolags I was working on. The single has been set side to wait for another single (or two!) that I plan to ply it with. Next up was plying. I had too many bobbins with miscellaneous singles on them, needed to free up some space for my next spins that will require my BIG bobbins. Oh yes, funky/chunky yarns are up next.

My goals are not lofty this year, keeping it simple given how busy life can be:

  • Spin 5 yarns

Yes, that is it. My goal is to spin 5 yarns. One may be a simple two ply, one may be a coiled yarn. I may even go with nonstandard materials, that all remains to be seen. Regardless I will be spinning and…
