Here we are – 3/4 of the way through the month of January.  Anyone wondering how the challenge is going?

Plum Pumpkin - WP

Yarnshine Fiber Arts – Plum Pumpkin batt

First spin of the year was a batt from Yarnshine Fiber Arts in sunny California.  This is not the first time I’ve fallen in love with Denise’s fibers and been very surprised how the colors re-blended during the spin.  I’m never disappointed.

I wonder what the yarn will be when it “grows up”……

What’s On the Wheel Wednesday

Vol. 2015, Issue 1

 It’s the first Wednesday of the New Year 2015!  Thought it would be nice to start a semi-regular series of what’s on (or maybe just come off) Blended Threads’ wheels.

Candy Bracelet  Polwarth  singles WPToday it’s some fabulous Romney and Polwarth from Into the Whirled.

First shot is 1.9 oz of the finest singles I’ve ever spun.  Still needs to be plied and measured, but I’m loving it so far.

Candy Bracelet   Romney  2 ply WP

Next up is 4 oz of 2 ply Romney.  Thought it would be nice to split this braid lengthwise right down the middle, then spin it from opposite ends of the colorway to two separate bobbins.  Then a simple barberpole ply technique.

That’s What’s On the Wheel for this week!  What’s on your wheel?
