More spinning



Merino-Silk mix from Dicentra Designs, bought it last fall at OFFF, immediately (or almost) spun first 4 oz, then fickle fingers tried something else, now with TdF getting close I didn't want a big amount, so grabbed 2nd 4oz bundle. Color is called Sherwood and will be a very masculine color once plied, should be fingering weight if my fingers remember. Pix of just the fiber shows the colors, a deep dark purple-maroon with small amounts of green (but of course).

Started spinning this morning just after 6 am while still cool enuff in wool room to need a flannel shirt on. Now just after 1 pm temp is 25°C or 78°F, perfect, altho forecast later is for 32°C or 90°F. Will be glad for the leftover macaroni salad for supper.



Just to show that I don't only spin green a pix of the 2 ply fingering weight Sand color from Smith & Ewe, ended up with over 1000 yards. Then a pix of the blue that I will start plying tomorrow morning. Someday down the pike the Sand just might turn into a shawl, someday.
