For two perfect spindles
I have this obsession with taking spindles with me when travelling. I have loads of purses, but these two spindles with big whorls haven’t had any earlier. Now they have one!
Square spindle from Michael Williams, Comet from Woolly Designs. Both are perfectly balanced with long and fast spin.
Tapestry crochet, yarn Sandnes Garn Mandarin Petit. Lining polyester, I think. Card woven strap in Mandarin Petit. Old rag rug gifted by a kind neighbour.
I have been spinning also. I started this yarn at a training camp on Ravelry before Tour de Fleece, and finished it a few days ago. Spun on three different light weight spindles and Louet Victoria. Sock yarn, 4-ply, 697 meters, 200 grams, merino and silk. I think for needles 2 mm, but still have to swatch.
What lovely yarn. You must have put some serious time into spinning it! Hope you will share what you make. Could be something lacy?
Thank you! It’s a sock yarn. I’ll share when the socks are finished!
Can’t wait to see what you knit with your sock yarn. Happy Knitting!
Mmmmm lovely greens.
You really are a splendidly skilled spinner. That will be a delectable pair of socks!
Thank you 🙂
