Shamelessly copying the Yarn Harlot, in my house Tuesdays are for spinning and yesterday, for the first time in a long time I was able to spin for a few hours.
After visiting Michigan, I headed up to Washington DC to visit some archives there. I was very privileged to meet up with the lovely Jody. We’ve been friends online since I started blogging in 2006, so it was great to finally meet in person. We had a very delicious dinner and then visited a yarn store where I got to
fondle see in person many of the beautiful yarns I’ve only previously seen online. I was very restrained and my only purchase was some fibre for Gorgeous Girl to spin. Jody spoiled me tremendously with some lovely yarn and fibre all packed in a beautiful handmade bag.
Since Tuesdays are for spinning I decided to break out the fibre she had gifted me with.
This is a beautiful blend of Blue Faced Leicester and silk from Hello Yarn. An episode of The Voice (Australian version) and American Pickers later I had this beautiful single.
Isn’t it pretty? I can’t wait to see the rest of the fibre spun up and plied together.
Tonight I need to try and work out how to insert a lining in a knitted bag, oh and I need to find the right fabric to use…
