Sunday Spin

I spent some time to day working on a merino spin from Yarn and Dogs in the Sea Glass colorway. I’ve now spun with enough breeds to know that I don’t love spinning merino. I love knitting with it and wearing it, but I would rather spin BFL. I have two 100 g braids of this fiber, so I’ll be working on it for a week or two.

I’m also working on a spin with Audrey. We bought some raw fleece at the orchard we spend all fall exploring. I washed it and Audrey has been carding it. We’ve both been spinning it. The wool is not great, but it is a fun project to do with Audrey. She has requested to dye it yellow with marigolds and wear it to the orchard next fall.

I hope you had a cozy Sunday enjoying your hobbies.

  1. 1. I love Audrey’s dress. 2. I can’t wait to see the yellow garment that Audrey is going to rock at the orchard. 3. You are making beautiful memories with your children. 4. Audrey will have a BA in Fashion Production before middle school. 5. I don’t know why I’m numbering things, probably because I haven’t finished my first cup of coffee and I feel like I need structure. 6. The orchard yarn looks good!

    1. 1. I do too! It’s one of my best thrifted finds. 2. I can’t wait to see it either. I hope we have enough. 3. Have I ever told you when I cook with the kids I have to stop myself from being frustrated and yelling “we’re making magical fucking memories!”? 4. I hope she does, because I would like someone to make custom pants for me. 5. I love numbering things. 6. Thank you, I am ready to be done spinning it. It is still full of VM.
