What’s on My Bobbin? – To Tell You the Truth, Not Much

To tell you the truth, I have less than an ounce of fiber on my bobbin.  Because I have been working so hard on the Hygge CAL, I haven’t been spinning much these last few weeks.  The temperatures are finally more in line with the calendar so looking like a molting bunny doesn’t appeal to me at the moment.  Just now I went into the kitchen to get the fiber to photograph and ended up splashing some cool water on my face so handling the fiber would have ended in disaster.

A Fiber Swap and Other Fun Stuff this Weekend

What a crazy weather weekend we had!  Saturday was rainy and cold then Sunday was hot and muggy.  I was so grateful that my crochet student gave me a cup of coffee when I came in for our lesson Saturday.  She even turned on the heater since we were both chilled to the bone with the dampness.

Sunday’s fiber swap was a bit nicer when the sun came out for a little bit.  It was so muggy though and the rain was not ready to give up as two showers passed as we spun.

Today’s weather is just about perfect with a few fluffy clouds and a nice breeze that is airing out the damp.  Hopefully, we have a few more days like today before summer hits with a bucket of humidity.

A Granny Stitch Cowl with some of my first handspun yarns

Today’s WIP is a combo project using some of the handspun yarn I spindle spun in the beginning of my spinning adventures.  (Is you head spinning yet from that sentence?  Mine is.  LOL)  The yarn has been sitting in a box at the foot of my bed for over a year.  As the spring cleaning bug continues in my home, I decided to wind the skeins into balls so I was sure to use them.

With the sparkle and green that I plied with gray, I didn’t want a fancy stitch lost in the colors.  When I thought about it, the Granny Stitch seemed like the best option.  Quick and easy was the way to go because I really want this project done.  I don’t want it to sit around for ages.
