It feels like fall around here. I love the crisp air and sunshine. Fall Break has started for J. We have no big plans for the week. This morning we set out for a favorite vendor’s mall and found a few “treasures”. There’s a craft festival coming up next weekend and I’m hoping there might be an opportunity to do a little fiber shopping.

So . . . on to a spinning update.
The dill heather peruvian wool is finished. I couldn’t be more pleased. Although it’s far from perfect, it’s much more consistent in diameter and twist. During the plying there was a bit of mess.
I tried to ply using the Louet which is heavier than the spindle I had used for the singles. Disaster. The singles became tangled and I just made matters worse as I tried to untangle. Eventually, I had to cut and start again. I switched to my homemade CD spindle, plied from a center-pull ball, and started enjoying the process again. The next day I untangled the mess and was able to ply that as well.
Love, LOVE , LOVE! Can’t wait to find the perfect pattern to match this yarn.
Enjoy your weekend!
