Spinning WIPs

My spinning WIPs aren’t near as numerous as the knitting and crocheting WIPs, so I thought I’d start with an update on those :) But first, a hightlight of some yarns I’ve finished since I last blogged!

From upper left and around: BFL from Three Waters Farm (TWF), Merino batt from Nunoco, Superfine Merino from TWF, my OWL spinning with fiber from TWF, Moods of Colors and Greenwood fiberworks, and last a Targhee from TWF.

I joined a fiber club from Three Waters Farm called Top of the Month, which is so much of my spinning is their fiber :) They have lovely colors!

Spinning is like my meditation, I spin mostly for the joy of it and not to have a finished product. Sometimes I want the yarn for something special, but mostly not. At the moment, I have three WIPs going, although one is very close to finished (it’s plied and resting on the bobbin). That is a merino and milk fiber blend from Nunoco, here it is resting

The second WIP is a TWF braid of Corriedale, the first single is soon finished and then onto chain plying. I don’t have any pic of that, apparently. It’s drafting nicely and I really like Corriedale as a spinning fiber. It will be interesting to see how it is as yarn :)

The last spinning WIP is a superfine merino from TWF

It is really soft but does not draft as easily as Corriedale or BFL, so it can hurt my hands if I’m not careful. This is the second skein I spin from this braid and I’m planning to use it for weaving a scarf later :)

I hope sharing my WIPs like this will get me moving on finishing them :D
