Fiber Arts Friday: More Spinning

Two weeks in a row of spinning posts!  I am very proud of myself.  Especially since I haven't done this much spinning since the Tour de Fleece last summer.  ;-)

I am loving it.  There is something about the rhythm and focus of spinning that is very relaxing.

This is an alpaca/silk blend painted by Knitty and Color.  It's just lovely.  So soft and lustrous.

The final result is 4 ounces, 142 yards at 18 wpi.

This yarn is being used for the quasi-commission piece I mentioned last week.

In the meantime, ensure you visit the Wonder Why Gal and all of the Fiber Arts Friday Participants.

What great colors. It's so interesting to see what roving will turn into when spun.

That roving is beautiful and I love how it spun up in singles. I am always curious about how it changes from being a single-v-plied.

I have knitted with a few of my experiments in singles now...and I have to say that the color really does pop more.

Thank you for sharing. I always love your Fiber Arts Friday posts xoxo

Thanks! I love how this yarn turned out too.

@CraftyCripple - you are correct, I couldn't wait to start knitting with it. It's knitting up beautifully. Hopefully I will have enough to show next week. :-)
