What about my spinning you say?

My spinning has slowed down, pretty much to a halt for a time. But I've picked up my spindle again and plied this.

I still have a bit more to go but my spindle was so full it would not hold anymore. I think that may have been part of the problem. It takes a bit more force to get all this yarn moving.

Now what am I going to make with this crazy colored yarn? I think it is mostly fingering weight. Maybe some stop traffic mitts? You know people are going to see those coming.


  1. I was just thinking to myself yesterday, "I really should do some spinning soon." I pick up my spindles every few months, spin a few yards, and then put them down again. I really need to get back on the wagon and do a project from my spun yarn, because that'd really motivate me to do some spindling!

    That would make a cool Baktus or Multnomah or something. How many yards did you get out of it?

    1. Oh Baktus or Multnomah, I love both of those patterns. I still have a bit more to ply before I know my yardage.

      Isn't it funny how spinning and knitting ebb and flow. Sometimes you can not get enough done and sometimes you don't even want to think about it.
