spinning





In an effort to draw my projects out into longer and nastier things, I purchased 8 ounces of roving last month. The color is called "Denim". I brought my drop spindle, and I've begun spinning. I'm taking the singles and winding them on my skein winder. Then, I take both ends, and put the ball on my finger, and I Peruvian (or Andean) ply the singles. I could use some practice. A shetland scarf pattern awaits this yarn.

I like the subtle color changes. Is it one of the Ashland Bay merino rovings?

Love it. Do you ever get an eye for seeing a roving and imagining the yarn or even the finished scarf? To my eye the stuff in the two pictures look completely different.

I don't think this is Ashland Bay, but I'm not sure.
I can definatley see this as a finished scarf. I don't think I'd have the desire to do this if I could not visualize something specific.

So, how's the ballerina coat doing? Too busy studying?

Oh, let me know how this goes. I am consciously trying to avoid learning to spin, because it will be one more craft to play with.
