Here is another one of my on-going projects. Spinning up some wool on my hand carved spindles by Ms. popsicletote from Ravelry! Aren't they cool! The yarn isn't bad either.
I have had the roving for quite some time now. As a matter of fact I have a LARGE basket full of roving in storage that I just keep chipping away at. I think this will turn out to be sock yarn at some point...not sure though, I might try weaving it into something who knows.
It spins up nice and fine and I usually use my spindles as support spindles in my lap in my recliner as I am listing to the television. Aren't the colors vibrant! Did I mention I am into the Fall colors lately?
This spindle is a phang, and it is carved of cypress and spruce. The whorl is bark! How cool is that?
I added the phone for a size reference.
Did I mention Fall colors? lol
I love the way all of the roving looks in one basket with all of those vibrant colors.
And I have even been chipping away at some cotton roving. Spinning is great when I am don't have a particular weaving idea going on in my head. I love using my own hand coiled pine needle baskets too. Hand crafted anything is the bomb! This spindle is one I got in a swap along with the pink and yellow roving you see in the basket above. Great for cotton. Just the perfect weight. Not that I know much about the technical end of spinning yarn.
O.K. I think I am all caught up now. See ya soon. Gotta go work on those Christmas presents.
