MSKR 2015 - Spinning Wheel Farm

Back to Bliss

It’s been a while since I worked on any spinning project, and I can’t imagine why it’s taken me this long to get back to it.

My True Serenity

I love knitting, but unlike many other knitters, I don’t find it to be a meditative, serene activity.

For that, I turn to spinning!

Back in 2005, when Franklin came East to got to Rhinebeck and posted the following photo in a blog entry about his trip.

I had just taken ownership of my Robin wheel and with Gage close by, I was lovingly putting it to good use.  I still feel this way when I sit down to spin.

Current Spinning and Crocheting

I’ve had Mindy’s mohair/Shetland blend fiber on my Robin wheel for about 2 years now, and I started spinning up some singles a while ago in a complementary blue/green colorway, figuring that I’d ply the two.   So now I’m focusing on finishing the mohair/Shetland singles.

I still have quite a bit of work to do.

I also made a little bit of progress on the new Interlocking Crochet Scarf in black glitter and teals/turquoises.

It’s almost finished…I’m on my last row and then just weaving in the remaining ends.
