I truly believe that Sunday mornings are meant for spinning. Well at least they are for me as my husband and I tend to start our morning off slow with a cup of coffee, a walk to the park and then back home to enjoy the day.
Today I’m working on my Targhee in the color Chincoteague. I’m so ashamed to say I started spinning this fiber back in May and the reason I haven’t given it too much love is the simple fact I’m still learning to spin on my Flatiron wheel. Such a poor excuse I know, but it’s the truth.
I truly love my Flatiron and I’m understanding that I need to slow down a bit when spinning. I’ve also learned that pre-drafting highly compacted fiber is a must for me when learning on a new wheel. I will get the hang of it and I know it will be another much loved wheel in my collection!
I am determined to finish the small amount left today so that I can get it plied and off my wheel to start my Humbug spin along with The 1764 Shepherdess on Instagram. (#humbugspin15 on Instagram).
“Bah!” said Scrooge, “Humbug!”
I purchased this fun kit earlier this month and will be starting my spinning next weekend.Inside each kit was 4 oz of Jacob Humbug, a Humbug charm, spinning oil, a sheep cookie cutter, a sugar cookie recipe, a Jacob Marley humbug badge and a tag. I love Sherrill’s kits and I really look forward to spinning along with everyone on Instagram ( a few have already started! ).
Until next time ~ be creative!
