So good to get back to my spinning group and spinning. It seemed a while, and I was a bit rusty.
But the task I set myself was to learn how to hand card. And I specifically wanted to mix some colours and fibers.
So I'll let the photos do most of the explaining.
What you have here is a mix of commercially dyed merino and corriedale wool and undyed silk.
And then I plyed it with cotton.
The colour is actually nothing like I set out to achieve. But am pretty happy with the result.
Actually, as someone pointed out in my group I actually created the colours I was wearing in my skirt. The photo is not that clear, but did you pick that up in the photo collage?
And I finally got around to finishing my 2nd denim composition.
I had 2 skeins of thick and thin. Decided to leave one as a single ply and the other I plyed with a cotton thread (the same as the above one).
So the final line up -
8 plyish, thick and thin plyed with cotton thread, and single ply thick and thin.
Now what to create. I want to use them in the one knitted project for an interesting textured look.I'm thinking a shawl, wrap , scarf thingy. Can anyone offer suggestions or patterns?
Have a fabulous Fiber Arts Friday
