At the Wheel Again

I haven't been spinning lately, but spinning is like that for me. I'll spin for several hours almost every day for months on end, and then have periods of weeks to several months, without spinning at all. Before starting my next spinning project, I gave my wheel a coat of linseed oil, moved it upstairs into my fiber room, and then last night, for the first time in months, I sat at the wheel and spun...

...this royal blue fiber. My current project is to spin this fiber into a yarn to knit my son a sweater with. It's a white lamb fleece from last year, processed and dyed a mix of two blues to create this lovely color. Spinning all this will take awhile, which is fine with me. Spinning is a process thing, and I'm fully enjoying my return to the craft.


  1. I have had computer probs and could not get online, it has been a treat catching up with your Blog. Your spinning wheel looks beautiful and the fibre gorgeous. What a lucky son. :)

  2. Inthesky -You have my heartfelt sympathy, I hate having computer problems. Glad to have you back again!
