And Now We Rest

My 70s kitchen colored alpaca singles are all now spun and complete!

I had split the 4 ounces of fiber into two halves and spun two sets of singles. I have now wound both of them onto bobbins from my spinning wheel to rest. How long they will rest….probably until I’m brave enough and have the brain space to watch plying tutorials.

The world is chaotic right now and my heart aches for all the pain that exists. I have been taking time to reflect, read and educate myself. I have found this to be taking up some of my crafting time, and I’m okay with it because it’s important. So these singles may have a good long nap ahead of them. But that is okay too.

I hope you all are safe and honestly doing the best you can. Virtual hugs to you all!!

  1. Like the idea of yarn ‘napping’. There’s a fair bit of napping going on in my house – in fact some of my stash may have been in a coma for a long time!

  2. I like how you spun your yarn. Such lovely colors. I just got a wheel, so if I could do anything half decent, I will be onto a good thing. One of the spinning books I have mentions letting the wool rest on the bobbin for a minimum of 24 hours, so for it to have a nap is a good thing! 🙂
