A Bit Of Spinning

I have been spinning this week and truly have been enjoying it more than ever. I finished one bobbin of my Bounty Hunters Picnic rolags last week and started the second set of rolags yesterday. I love the colors and I’m trying to decide if I want to ply the finished bobbins together or chain ply them separately. I find it interesting how the colors changed after I separated them for creating my rolags. You can read more about that here.

I also finished spinning my Shetland for the February Breed Study and hope to ply it this weekend. I will be chain plying this just like the one for January and aiming for the same amount of yardage.

Love the red tones in this fiber!

I plan to do more spinning over the next few months. Spinning brings me such joy and I want to get better so that I can use more of my handspun for knitting projects.

What have you been working on this week?

  1. I enjoy seeing the rolags turn into yarn. Even though I do not understand all the spinning terminology, I do like seeing it transform from fleece to fiber. You have some very pretty colors happening too.

  2. I find spinning to be so meditative, and I’m looking forward to doing more of it myself. I think I burned myself out a bit on my most recent combo spin project, so I want to do some smaller, single-skein projects.

    1. Spinning is truly meditative Sarah, and I find it to be more so than knitting at times. I’ve burned myself out before, the is to take a break between spinning projects 😊


  3. ooohhh so pretty, Tina! I’ve been following Sarah’s spinning for a while so I know to expect the singles to look very different from the unspun fiber, but still – wow! the contrast with the Bounty Hunters surprised me.

  4. Your spinning is so lovely. The rolags look so shiney and soft.

    Shetland is one of my favourite wools! One of my pals has a flock and I get to work with some of their lovely locks from the raw. I’m currently spinning up some wool from the Ottawa Wool Board but once it is complete I will be trying a sample of Shetland fleece from a fibre friend in BC. 😊

    1. Thank you so much Simone, it is a soft BFL blend, which I love spinning. Shetland is another favorite of mine to spin and to knit with. Such a sturdy wool. That is so awesome you’ll be sampling a Shetland fleece. I hope you write about it on your blog 😊
