Still Spinning

Even though my spinning wheel mostly sits around and collects dust these days, every once and awhile I bust it out and give it a little love.


I finally finished spinning the Miss Babs roving I acquired at Stitches Midwest last year. It's 4oz of pure merino loveliness.


It's 2-ply and I ended up with about 325 yards in the end. Not bad for me! I usually end up with something in the 250 yard range, and I am always trying to spin thinner.

I think I may try to design something for it. Another handspun shawlette of some kind, I think.

I really how the colors came out in this yarn. I think at Stitches Midwest this year, I may need to acquire some more. :)

Happy knitting (and spinning)!
