About Half Done

My spinning mojo has been even lower than my knitting mojo. But I did manage to get the second set of colors spun of my Tequila Sunrise corriedale project.

The first bobbin on the left is all pure yellow and the bobbin on the right is the where the pink and yellows mixed and it is more orange. I figure I have spun roughly half the braid. A large portion of this braid is all pink.

I think my plan is to spin the pile in the top right first as it is the lighter pink and then spin the ball of darkest pink last. I would hope to teach myself how to andean ply so I can make a gradient of all this yarn. But that might necessitate more brain power and mojo than I can seem to muster right now. Time will tell!

Tequila Sunrise Singles Progress

I have done a major pivot on my Tequila Sunrise spinning project. I initially split the braid in half by weight and then started big thick singles. But I kinda hated it. So I redesigned my spin.

I took both of my halves and pulled out all the yellow sections and put them in a ball. Then I pulled out all the yellow-orange and orange fiber and made that a ball. And finally I grouped all the pink. I’m spinning each color section on to it’s own bobbin.

Then I have big dreams of learning how to andean 3-ply on my spinning wheel. I have kid free weekend coming up and this feels like the right space to learn that. But first I need to spin up all this fiber!!

Happy Spinning
