I had such a wonderful day yesterday. Spinning and knitting and talking fibre all day. Perfect.
I am really pleased with my spinning too. In the morning, while spinning with a friend, I picked up a project that was midway to completion.
My default spinning seems to be quite fine, and I started this project to see if I could force myself to spin thicker. My goal is for a loftier 2 or 3 ply. My spinning yesterday is not too far off what I did on starting this project over 2 years ago and that pleases me. A lot.
I knit in the afternoon on a couple different things, but before bedtime, I had the urge to go back to spinning.
I didn't want to do the greens so I pulled out what I had been working on on my larger wheel last summer. I haven't sorted out the right chair for the larger wheel yet, and haven't found a place where I can keep it and work on it, where the kids won't play with it, so I thought that I would give the small wheel, my repaired Victoria a try and see if I could get the same result on it.
So far so fair
It's reasonably consistent with the other bobbin. I have about a third of this half braid left for this bobbin and I am really looking forward to plying it to see what it turns out like.
It was the most rewarding lovely whole day.
