Spinning Cotton

Awhile back I won a hipstrings spindle and some cotton. It was quite a surprise! And a lovely one at that. While I’ve been using the spindle quite a bit, in fact, it’s turned into one of my favorites, I’ve not been using it to spin cotton. Until now.

I decided that since sometimes lately spinning feels “old” to me, or at least doing the same type of spinning over and over seems stale, I need to expand. Of course, the hawser ply project is part of this, but I wanted something that wasn’t wheel spun as well, since sometimes I just want to kick back with my feet up and spin.


I know, I know. What is on the spindle isn’t much. However, my inexperience with cotton has me spinning quite slowly. I decided right off the bat I am ok with slubby, as cotton tends to be. However, even with the amount on there, I can already see it evening out into a better yarn.

Of course, last night, there was no crafting time, none tonight, and none tomorrow night. So, sadly, the blog may be a bit sparse until I have some crafting time this weekend.
