Sunday spinning update: first skein of 2015 in progress

I feel relieved that I’ve finished enough of my knitting deadlines that I was able to spend some time at the spinning wheel over the holidays. I started out with something that’s new to me: a merino Bullseye Bump from Loop. Mine was called Wavelength and was composed of lots of different shades of blue.

The spinning was simple: pull from the middle & just keep going. It was hart to stop at times because I wanted to see the next colour. Here are my progress shots from beginning right through to having the singles all spun up:

I am planning to chain ply this for a nice blue gradient yarn. I haven’t a clue what yardage I’ll get. The batt was 4.5 oz.

Next up I’m thinking I’d like to get back to working with some BFL. I love to spin it and I’ve got lots of choices thanks to me of my Southern Cross Fibre club membership. I’m glad to be back at the wheel!
