Spinning a bit

I haven’t been doing a ton of spinning since my last 3 ply project was completed I lost the overwhelming motivation I was having with spinning, and it’s settled into something a little more natural. Which is good. But, I also am coming to the realization that part of the issue is the way I’ve chosen to spin this particular braid.

I went for a slightly thicker than the last two spins single in hopes that I could make a chain ply yarn. I am spinning directly from the braid so there will be long stripes. The thing is, it’s not that fun to manage the colors, moving back and forth on the braid to use up all one color before the next one begins. Also, I am not entirely sure I enjoy chain plying, so I am spinning with hesitation because finishing means chain plying.

But, I rarely chain ply, so it’s entirely possible I like it well enough, I just think I don’t.


In any case, here’s what that spin is looking like at the moment. A dark photo because dark and rain and storms are all we’ve seen for a number of days now. Even when it isn’t raining, it looks like it’s about to.

But I am not bitter.

Looks like today could be sunny. Let’s hope so!

  1. I get it about the spinning being uncertain. But you know, in the end it is always interesting yarn, and the right project for it will come along. 🙂

    This spring weather is CRAZY! I am fortunate that our rain is just rain, though endless, we don’t get tornadoes, etc, usually. Just dreary cold rainy days.

    I keep knitting on my sweater, and it doesn’t seem odd to be knitting on this time of year, because it is so nice and warm on my lap!

    But i hope you all are safe and sound and not dealing with all the tornadoes.
