But first I have to share this photo I snapped of my lunch yesterday: leftover dumplings, new music (checking out the Broken Bells album), natural light. Yum! (And necessary sustenance for all of the spinning I have been doing this weekend.)
Finished singles, on the niddy noddy. No breaks in the winding process, which I was super happy about. I was aiming for a low-enough twist for these to be reasonably balanced after finishing. With trepidation, I took them off the niddy noddy.
And snapped another picture. So far so good — the singles are not too twisty! Into the bath they go.
Post bath, admiring the sheen of the mohair.
Boh lays claim to the towel used to squeeze out the excess water. (Can you blame him? It smells like wet woolliness.)
And now the singles are hanging to dry. It feels good to be spending so much time at my wheel!
Simply stunning! And you just sealed it for me – definitely singles for this fiber. You set the bar high with this one!
WOW!! What beautiful spinning and photos! I haven’t done singles for a long time. I should try it again.
Hurray for spring break! It looks sunny and wonderful there, and you’re going great guns with the spinning. :-)
These are so great. I should really get my singles into the bath!
Hehe. Weetsie has left her mark on you! Awesome singles! Can’t wait to see what you do with them!
Gorgeous! Awesome use of the weekend!
That is a lot of spinning — well done! I can’t wait to see what those singles become!
Looks great! Surprisingly, was listening to The High Road while reading this.
that mohair is gorgeous! & super cute dog too :)
