Since moving to Portland last summer, I hadn’t touched my spinning wheel. Here’s the last bobbin I spun in SF.

Maybe I wasn’t sure where I was in the progress of this braid of roving- maybe that kept me from it? Well, I took the wheel out of the closet today and this awaited me.

Ahhhh isn’t it pretty??? I spun while watching a movie with the kids, and before I knew it, I had this:

It looks like I spun more tightly on the second bobbin, but I imagine things will even out in the plying and washing.

It feels nice to pick up a project that hasn’t been loved in a while! Now I think I’ll see how much I can ply before I need to sleep. Note: I’ve always let the singles “rest,” but tonight I think I’ll throw caution to the wind and see what happens.

Happy crafting!
