Spinning progress pictures! Thanks for all the compliments on the Inara Wrap. It is stunning mostly because of Marja’s yarn. And yes, it’s true, I am very fortunate to know a spinner that doesn’t knit and is generous with her handspun. On the other hand, I taught her, and I always pay her back with generous amounts of knitting or fiber to spin. It’s a lovely trade off!

Anyhow, spinning pictures. I am now working on the second 4 oz. bump of Gasoline Rainbow.


Here it is paired with the first bump singles. It seems like this new one has far more of that green tone and the colors are a bit brighter. I think that might be due to working with smaller sections of color in addition to two fiber braids taking dye differently. This is going to be a very large fractal spin, so any color differences will be very nicely blended. I can’t wait to see it done! As of this morning, I am very close the 3/4 of the way done with the second bump.

We’ve got Mr. Ink’s younger brother in town right now, and that seems to be a lovely way to get me to sit longer at the wheel. He’ll chat with me (or at me, sometimes) and I spin away while listening. It’s pretty nice!
