Tuesdays are for spinning, so last night after finishing my reading, I divided up some fibre into three equal lots and started to spin. I’m aiming for a traditional three-ply and want to make socks with the resulting yarn.
This is how much I got done before heading to bed.
It’s not often that I spin to a plan, but the fibre is not next to skin soft. This is south down fibre that Gorgeous Man bought for me for Christmas (yes, I’m aware I’m only getting to it 5 months later). He’s been very good about seeking out fibres I haven’t spun yet. To be honest the prep for this fibre is a little disappointing. It’s a bit neppy and I’m having difficulty getting it fine enough for a three-ply sock yarn. However, I’m sure it will even out in the end once it’s plied.
