Happy Saturday everyone! I truly hope your Easter weekend is off to a good start. I started my weekend yesterday as I was blessed to have Good Friday off (holiday for me). I spent the majority of my day spinning and finished one bobbin of my Three Waters Farm Falkland in the color Corduroys and Boots.
I absolutely love how it turned out and I am hopeful that this bobbin, along with the second bobbin I will be starting today, will give me enough yardage for a small shawl. My plan is to create a two-ply yarn with a goal of at least 300 yards (fingers crossed).
Side note: Maintenance is a very important part of keeping your wheels in good working order. I noticed a slight wobble when I was spinning on my Ashford Traditional yesterday. So after I finished spinning my first bobbin, I tightened up all the areas with my allen wrench and gave her a good oiling. I also wiped her down to remove any leftover fiber and dust. The Woolery is a great a source for tips and videos for wheel maintenance.
For some reason the spinning bug has really grabbed ahold of me, which is a good thing, right ? Even though I plan on finishing my Three Waters Farm Falkland over the weekend, I also plan to start spinning my other color of Abundant Earth Fiber Signature Blend in Skylight. I want to start my Hap Cowl !!
I am casting on my Blenheim Roses mitts today and I am super excited about using my recently completed handspun for this project. I love this pattern and I’m so happy I kept my copy of the Spin-Off Magazine it was published in.
