Spindle Spinning

In addition to the 8 oz. I currently have going on my wheel for an opposing ply 3 ply yarn, I’ve got a project on the spindles.

I may have already mentioned this, but I’ve realized that I much prefer to spin batts and roving, as opposed to top. And most of what I have in stash is top. So, any stash infusions I’ve got going on right now has to do with infusing the side of spinning I really enjoy.

Which is why I picked up some inglenook batts the other day. These are all dyed with natural dyes. And they are lovely!

In order to stay on target with my desire to spin out of the Spinner’s Book of Yarn Designs, I plan to 2 ply these, and then ply it with a silk hankies single I dyed a long while ago that I’ve had sitting in stash, making myself a crepe yarn.

Of course, that means I have to keep after the opposing ply project, since that is an 8 oz. project and promises to take quite a long time to finish.
