About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

A Full Bobbin!

I’ve spun at least a little every day since Saturday, and I’ve got my first bobbin full of the green merino-silk.


And, um, still a basketfull left to go.  😀


I played with it a little, and if I don’t end up with three bobbins to ply, I’m going to Navajo-ply it, because it’s really nice as a three-ply.

    Oh that’s gorgoeus! I have some merino silk yarn that’s waiting for me when I get back… you’re making me want it right now!

  • Congrats on the spinning. Is this training for Tour de Fleece?

    Very pretty! I can’t for the life of me three ply. It always looks like crap.

  • That is some gorgeous stuff there. I can’t wait to see it all done! (No pressure ;0)

    I’m just idly reading by, and then I have a “WHATHA??? Isn’t that …. I think it’s …. I’m *sure* it’s …” moment! Had to go back one entry to one I missed to be sure, but YUP. That there is some FINE Louet merino silk, bought in one of the oddest “yarn shops” I’ve had the pleasure to visit. “Marty’s” in the small ski/cottage community of Haliburton, Ontario – half the store is health foods, the other half yarn. I’m so glad to hear it is spinning up beautifully for you. It wants to be laceweight, doesn’t it?? 😉

    Long distance XX’s to you, my friend.
