This past weekend I took an intro to wheel spinning class at my LYS. The wheel I used was an Ashford Joy which is a double treadle wheel and I really liked it (both the class and the wheel). And here’s what I spun, all 11 yards of it. Not too shabby. The fiber is Kraemer Yarns Mauch Chunky Roving in the colorway Juju Fruit and it’s real purdy.
As a prerequisite to the yarn plying class, I need to log about 10 hours of spinning and be able to produce a finer weight yarn. So I just, ahem, had to buy some Louet Northern Lights wool top in the colorway Ocean Waves to practice on. The instructor had spun up a shop sample and it was calling my name. Very loudly. These are definitely Susan colors. Wait, don’t I already have some cotton on a cone in this exact same colorway? Why yes, yes I do.
I’ve also had lots of ideas for sewing projects. The projects I’m thinking of sewing require 2 different matching fabrics. And wouldn’t you know it, not one of my fabrics matches one another. None. Of. Them. How is that possible? I guess it’s time to visit the fabric store again.
