Spindle Spun



This is the latest spin (in progress) from the fiber exchange. The fiber is a blend of Cheviot and Jacob wool which I hand dyed in an ombre gradation. My plan is to ply the two singles from light to dark. I started this on the spindle one stormy day when it was too wet to take Mirabelle (my wheel) to the spinning group. I considered transferring it to a bobbin when I got back home, but I thought it would be nice to have at least on skein of spindle spun/plied yarn in this project. It's been slow going in the spinning world, I've had a number of gift projects to finish which has interrupted my spinning progress. I don't feel too bad though, since I enjoy knitting as much as I do spinning!

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings Friends!
