Set in Motion



So, I finally have a bit of time off from work and have taken some of it to spin (among various other things that will be mentioned quite soon!) As many of you know, Molly sent me some absolutely lovely corriedale fiber, for no particular reason, in both a teal and jade (brighter teal) colorway. I've decided to try and spin a large amount of it up in the next two weeks, so I've been working hard on singles.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to enter the finished yarn into the monthly contest in the Spindler's group on Ravelry. The theme for September is 'rock groups', and I think if I ply the jade with some copper thread it would look a lot like turquoise. Otherwise, I'm aiming for a high-tension 2-ply of the teal and jade. The singles this time around have been a lot easier and a lot prettier than my original spinning, which shall not be named or shown. Ever. It was with a nightmare fiber from a very greasy sheep, and probably a mutton sheep to begin with, not a real fleece sheep. But here, for your enjoyment, are some singles:



Fiber: Louet Corriedale, colorway 'Teal'
Gifted from Molly (Riprap, on Ravelry)
Spindle: Butterfly Girl Designs - Lacy Agate Spindle (2-set)
