Spinning for Feral Beginners

Too Long between spins?

With knitting designs and painting at the front of the queue, the spinning has certainly slowed down. Since I can't keep away from the fibre club offerings, I've sneaked a spindle session in every once in a while. Here are some of my recent illicit spinnings:

Dark Matter Wool and Mohair Blend from SIOz

Dark Matter Handspun in 2ply -- worked out to about a heavy laceweight
with less gold and more of the green and blue end of the lot than fibre photo

The roany-rust 2 ply above is a sampling of a coloured Romney. It took me several goes before I was happy with this colour, which I became obsessed with. Not too orangy, not too brown, and not too red. It feels fabulous!
