Spinning My

This is what I had this morning---all these little skeins of single-ply, handspun.

I stuck them all in a hot bath to set the twist so I can start plying.
silk/merino ramen.  Yum!
And now they are all outside to dry---because we got, like, 3 whole hours of sun today!

Tomorrow, maybe, I'll start plying.  In the meantime, I'm reading Bilbo's Journey:  Discovering the Hidden Meaning in The Hobbit.  It's for my September bookclub; we're reading The Hobbit and this one together.  So far, I'm enjoying his analysis of this book I've loved since I was young.  I never read it from an analytical perspective; I just enjoyed it.  I never thought that Bilbo might have something in common with Smaug, which his journey there and back again cures him of.  I wasn't really planning to re-read it for book club (since I've read it many times before), but I might after all.

  1. Very pretty yarn. I have never soaked mine before plying it. I usually ply right after spinning the singles and then soak it. Hope you get enough sun to dry it all!


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
