You may remember these batts I carded up for myself awhile back, Harbinger of Spring, well I finally got a chance to spin them up! I've been doing a lot of spinning this week and I'm lovin it! Between spinning and plying, my trusty Lendrum, Mirabella, has been getting a real work out. We both needed the exercise!!!
I spun those batts into a thick and thin single, which I auto plied with a fine cream colored silk strand, then I plied it into this super coil yarn, I had a blast playing with the coils! This worked out to be 4.25 ounces/35.5 yards/Mondo-Bulky 4 wpi.
I've given myself a little more me time this week, spinning just for fun and reading, I hope you will remember to pencil in a little time to nurture your creative spirit too!
Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings friends!
