A little Social Spinning.
Since we are all sitting at home, and not going out to gatherings, I did a little spinning with some friends from my weavers and spinners guild on Zoom. A social distancing, social. For our first try, it went very well. We chatted about many things while most of us were spinning, just like we do when we meet in person.
This is part of the batt I used. You can see there are large parts that or very hard to draft along with wool. It is silk fibre, I think.
It was getting close to time to start zoom so I did a few rolags up with my hand carders. Naturally, I didn’t think to take pictures of them until later. Lying in bed I think that’s ok I had 1 or I thought 2 left I will do it tomorrow. But, they disappeared mysteriously. No one took them or moved them. Not even a bit of fluff from them has surfaced so I think perhaps some fairies came in the night and took them off to make soft beds or something.
I do have a picture of the little bit of spinning I did. I will have to make some more rolags and hide them. Although putting stuff in safe places often means I can’t find them either.
This is the P.S. to this part of the post. I made some more rolags after I finished setting the post up. Here they are:
This is some spinning I did earlier in the week form a different batt. This batt is a nice grey and pink. I think I showed it to you before but can’t find where.
I thought I had a picture of it as a single but it’s not on my phone. This is it plied into a 2 ply yarn and wound into a little center pull ball. It is quite pretty
I hope everyone is keeping well during this stressful time.
