First spin of 2015

That 2015 might be hard to get used to!

I finished the falkland wool I was spinning on my support spindles and got it all plied up. A worsted weight 3 ply of which there are 150 yards.

I am never a fan of spinning the singles of really bouncy wool, but I am ALWAYS a fan of plying them. This was no exception.

I am also a huge fan of greens and browns together and while I wasn’t crazy excited about the fiber itself, once I started plying it, it all came together beautifully.

Now back to my socks!!!

  1. So of course I have to ask…what are you going to make? A hat? Some fingerless mitts? A wonderful skein to be petted and loved and called George? Anyway congrats on the lovely spin, it does look super bouncy (in a good way!)

    • I am going to have to answer with the Skein Called George. Maybe we need to coin the term “It’s a George” for handspun yarn. Use it enough and everyone will know what that means.
