Nothing like a birthday to get the crafting juices pumping!
After an afternoon of knitting... frogging and knitting again (wrong size needles/yarn problems) I needed a break from the pressure of knitting very plain and simple things wrong so I got the wheel out and finally plied my lovely "Jump for my Love" Uk shetland dyed my Spinning a Yarn. I had this for my birthday and actually finished spinning it a while ago but I run out of bobbins to ply it (poor planning obviously)
so here is it's journey :)
The Fibre Braid
Bobbin loaded with single one
First I split the fibre by splitting the braid length ways down the middle and then spun it worsted... once spun into these two singles I plied them together into a lovely fingering weight yarn... the effect is so beautiful.
There is 120m of it and it is lovely and squishy although I have no idea what to make with it yet !
So now the blog is done I guess I should continue with the birthday crafting.... or maybe a bit of relaxation spinning :)
