Remember last year I asked for some people to spin some roving? Well the results are in. The samples I sent off found loving homes and turned into little skeins of yarn like this.
Nerissa said “the whole time I was spinning it I kept wishing that there I had more to spin!” I’m definitely taking that as a good thing.
I dyed some more last weekend, and since then I have found myself wandering around the house pulling little bits of fibre between my fingers, twisting them into tiny threads of yarn. My daughter (three and a half) has adopted some as a pet. I think that’s another good sign. I can feel my ‘I don’t spin’ resolve slowly seeping away. But I just gave in to the quilting, maybe that will distract me for a while?
Anyway, I present the first (hopefully of many) new thing from Dublin Dye this year.
The roving, along with a few skeins of sock yarn, have been added to the Etsy shop. We’re still having our MERRYCHRISTMAS sale on for 3 more days too! Finally, if you tune in tomorrow when we’ll have a guest post from Diane at the Dublin Knit Collective about her sample spinning. See you then 🙂
