I am so happy about my finished skein of handspun … 65 yards and definitely perfect for a pair of Blenheim Roses Mitts. I am mixing this skein with a skein of handspun Gotland that I spun up a couple of years ago (was it really that long ago 😳) during a breed study hosted by Sherrill of The 1764 Shepherdess.
I have started spinning a bump of Abundant Earth Fibers Signature Blend in the color Forage. I still can’t say enough about this fiber. I love it, especially the rustic feel and nature of it, still reminds me of Jamiesons Shetland. This finished handspun will be destined for the intentional spinning project that I started July 2018 …. talk about procrastination!
I am using my Schacht Ladybug for this spinning project. I love all my Schacht wheels, but think the Ladybug might be my favorite.
I have also added to my stash and just received this gorgeous BFL and Nylon blend from Greenwood FiberWorks called Paper Roses. This fiber is for socks, which is my intent. Wish me luck as I still haven’t managed to spin for socks yet. I love Carolyns fiber and if you haven’t tried her hand dyed loveliness, I highly recommend her shop.
