A Little Handspun

I was able to get another spinning project done. It seems that a two-ply laceweight or sock weight yarn is what I want to be creating right now. And that’s fine. I’ll just go with it until this trend spins itself out.


In this case, I got 615 yards of 2 ply from a 4-ounce braid of fiber. I enjoyed this spin quite a bit. There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to the color changes here, I just split everything into tiny pieces and muddled it all together.

This yarn feels like it expanded a bit once washed, which is always fun to see. It’s a superwash merino, so I didn’t really expect life to be breathed back into it that way. It’s quite soft!

It’s been a decent start to the week. Busy at work but not the dumpster fire that was 4 out of the 5 work days last week. (Today isn’t looking promising, but I could still be surprised, and I hope I am!) We took the dogs to the local botanical garden last evening for the twice-monthly dog walk, it was a perfect evening for it. Rose is having a ridiculous amount of extra energy lately, and that walk, despite being long, didn’t really tap it. So, if it doesn’t rain this evening, off to the dog park we go. We could really use the rain, but we could also really use the dog park trip.

That’s about it from here today! I hope everyone is getting a decent start to their week!
