Sundays are for spinning. It is a most relaxing way to spend my Sabbath – especially when I am navajo plying.
I started spinning this gorgeous South African Fine Merino from the Spunky Eclectic Club a couple of weeks ago:
February 2013 Club Day Lily
Because I was spinning it super thin, and because I also spent a lot of time knitting and mothering, it took me a long while to get this four ounces to look like this:
Navajo plying has got to be the most relaxing activity there is. I just love it. I love the yarn that it produces, too.
I got about 415 yards of fingering weight yarn out of the one braid. Then I sold my other two to a fellow Raveller because, while I love this yarn, I have no idea what I would make with 12 ounces of it.
As for me, I have moved on and already have a bobbin full of this months’ Spunky Fiber, a gorgeous BFL that has me completely over the moon (and not just because it is purple)!
