and the spinning


These two photos are my latest spinning project. It actually took me about 6 months to get this all spun up. It's 8 ounces of pink, purple, white, and brown cotswold and merino, with some sparkles, spun in two-ply worsted weight. About 400 yards. No idea yet of what I should make with it.

That is beautiful! You did that on a spindle?? Wow. Thanks for the felting info. I didn't expect that. And the blocking idea. I'll have to give it a go, what the heck. I had the scissors out looking at it. But I'll put them away

That is so gorgeous, I can't begin to think how much work went into that. Don't forget to keep us up to date on what you made with it.
