Fiber time

Yesterday afternoon we drove to Tillamook for a program Brian was involved in, so I got to enjoy some fiber time. I knit a bit on my two WIPs ('works in progress,' which happen to be a small shawl and a pair of socks) but mostly I spun. There's nothing like seeing the end in sight to spur me on to the finish line, and the end of the white Gotland was near!

Here it is, all two ounces of it, sitting next to the two ounces of grey Gotland spun on the same spindle (Jenkins Aegean in olivewood) earlier:

Now to decide whether to ply them together or each with itself! What do YOU think?

That's it for today from . . .

They are both lovely colors - wish I could touch it and feel the wool. I can't say whether to ply the colors or not- I know nothing about knitting. Just wish you could show pictures of you spinning the wool. It's so uniformly done - on the spool(?). Can't wait to see what you make with them!

Both are beautiful! That's a tough one.... I don't think you can go wrong either way.
Thanks for stopping by my blog, so nice to know it does get ready every once in a while! lol

Ooo, so pretty. What to do depends on what you want to use the yarn for!

I vote for ply, the two colors would add more interest and depth. Good job on the spindle, looks so uniform and neat.

Oh, how I wish I could create something as beautiful as you do, Michelle... you are so talented and the things you make are so beautiful.

Wonderful wrapping of your yarn "turtles". The two plyed together would make a beautiful finished item. Unless you don't want a marbled yarn.

Both are lovely - I think together would be grand! V

Lovely fiber. I vote for plying them separately. Just a personal preference, but I don't think there's a wrong way to do this, either way would be great.

I'd just sit and admire them for a while. The Jenkins spindles sure do make a pretty cop.

They are each beautiful on their own. Simple is elegant. But blended would be nice, too. :)

Wow, beautiful singles Michelle - and we love the smell of sarcacocca too... And pretty handsome horse! T.
