Ap*ply*ing myself

I need an editor to stop me from making horrible puns, don’t I?  But it’s true, today I have been applying myself to plying two bobbins of handspun together.  I haven’t done the whole lot yet, and there won’t be … finish reading “Ap*ply*ing myself”

Productive day

I did lots today, and even managed to get in a nap this afternoon.  Well, I’d worn myself out!  Of course, when I say “lots”, that’s “lots for me”, but still.  I’ve been to see the Flower Festival at Mum’s … finish reading “Productive day”

And they’re off!

So, I’ve started my spinning for the Tour de Fleece.  As I said yesterday, I’m starting with two complementary braids from Limegreenjelly that I’m going to ply together.  I’d actually spun up half of one of them already, so I … finish reading “And they’re off!”

And I’m Done

Woohoo, I’ve completed NaBloPoMo for June.  I shall give myself a pat on the back… and maybe check if there’s a “winner” badge or something.  No big deal if not. I’ve also been seeing how I can do on the … finish reading “And I’m Done”

Spinning again

As well as not having blogged since July, I haven’t done any spinning since then either.  During the blogathon, I posted that I was spinning some gorgeous merino fibre.  I got maybe 10g of the 100g braid actually done, and … finish reading “Spinning again”

9: Finished skeins – no.2

And here’s my second finished skein of yarn: As you can see from the collage picture, the original fibre was turquoise, navy, and red.  I rather like the way the colours blended, both in the spinning and plying process, to … finish reading “9: Finished skeins – no.2”

8: Finished skeins – no.1

Still working on the bipolar post (I should stop faffing, really), and I’ve also realised that I seem to somehow be a post behind.  So, here are a couple in quick sucession.  I haven’t posted on here yet about the … finish reading “8: Finished skeins – no.1”

I’m still working on the bipolar topic post, so I though that this half hour I’d show you what I’m currently spinning.  Well, not currently, since I’m typing right now, but you know what I mean ;-) I am, by … finish reading “7: Merino soffffft”
