The question has morphed from "What's on your needles?" to "What's on your bobbins?" I suppose this is only fitting since my blog's name is Spindles and Spices.
So, what's on my bobbins, you ask (or maybe you didn't ask, but please indulge me)? These lovely singles are ready to ply - the colorway is Red from Chasing Rainbows Dyeworks. It is a 50/50 blend of merino and tencel. For this round of spinning, I felt brave and I used my fast speed flyer whorl, giving me a flyer to wheel ratio of 13:1.
Perhaps this will be for socks or lace? That is, when I actually start knitting again! This fiber felt squeaky when I was drafting it, which is due to the tencel. Two bobbins are full of this stuff, so it is ready for plying.
I guess this blog post's title is not entirely true because there were some Monday blues involved.
This is a 70/30 blend of merino/tencel from Carolina Homespun. Since my increasing stash is starting to scare me, I'm spinning it from Kim-Chi Crafts's roving collection (finished yarn will go to her). I'm using a flyer to wheel ratio of 15.5:1 and so far, this is working out well.
I realize that most of my pet pictures are taken in the same spot, but it's everyone's favorite place to be. Unlike last time, Fifty was able to ward off evil Greaseball to retain the sun puddle.
The cats were being especially tolerant of me today, probably because they didn't want me to take their spots.
