Spinning Tuesdays: This Is What Spinning Startitis Looks Like
I’ve been thinking about my spinning goals for the year, but I have a case of a particular crafting illness.
I have a bad case of Spinning Startitis. For the past week or so I’ve started a bunch of things.
Here are a few of the bobbins that I’ve been working on.
A bobbin spun from Shetland rovingÂ from Yarn Hollow, spun woolen. This will become a tight three-ply and eventually mittens.
A bobbin spun from Cheviot and Shetland rovings from Yarn Hollow, spun woolen with a double marl to see how the colors work together. This will become a 2-ply, then eventually a shawl.
A bobbin spun from South African Fine top from Spunky Eclectic, spun worsted. It nearly killed me, the worsted spinning. It’s going to take a lot of practice to get to the point where worsted is a relaxing spin for me. But look at the blue color, that alone kept me going. This is going to be 2-ply, and eventually a lace crescent shawl, I even have the stitch pattern picked out already.
A bobbin spun from BricolageÂ Studios’ handpulled roving. This one I just let rip, it’s lumpy, bumpy, thick, thin and all kinds of textured. Right now it’s just hanging out. I may ply it with some shiny thread.
So it’s seems I’m really getting the hang of my Spinning with Intention goal for the year. Not really a surprise if you know how much I like to plan things. I probably should add finish what you start to my list of goals. Maybe for 2013.
