Yesterday on day 6 I was at work when I should have been home spinning. Every hour that went by my anxiety grew, and as the 11p hour came up, I just threw in the towel. But if I had been able to do the work I set out to do, you would have seen this:
Freckle Face Fibers BFL in Purple Poppies. This morning I plied it, washed it, whacked it and hung it out to dry. Not to shabby for a day of work.
It came out of it's bath looking pretty good. I love the way it fulled after it's bath. What I'm looking forward to is the 'sproing' after it dries.
Stage 7 which is today, will see me working up some of Dripping Fiber Studios polwarth in Garden Gloves:
I've never worked with polwarth before, but I've heard good things and I hope I can do right by it.
It's even prettier when drafted and ready for the splits:
So, I'm still in the race, unlike poor Bradley Wiggins.
Oh, and there's still spinning on my trindle which I swear is going to take as long as the Tour de France to finish! Oy! The silver lining in all of this - I'm on my fifth braid and we're only one week into the race. Yay!
If I can spin 5 braids in a week, I should be able to spin five more before the race ends, right?
