Sunday spinning update: 3 bobbins full

I’m happy to report that I’ve been doing quite a bit more spinning this month. I finished up the Seraglio singles that I was working on before (on the right below) and rather than ply it up, I moved right on to the next thing, and then the next thing. I ended up with 3 full bobbins:

The first thing up turned out to be Promise, a bag of Finn from Southern Cross Fibre. I love fall colours, and this was full of them. On a whim I decided to separate out the colours and spin a gradient yarn. After all of that fun I was anxious to see what I’d ended up with. All plied up, I’ve got about 210 yards of chain-plied yarn ranging from red to deep green. I have no idea what it’ll be, but I’m thrilled that I have the time & ability to sit for long enough to spin again.

And now I have started on a pair of batts from Countess Ablaze. Once again, there are some lovely fall colours in these batts: red, rust, orange, green, and bronzy sparkles. The first batt pretty much filled a whole bobbin:

Hopefully I’ll get through the second batt this week.

In family news, school seems to be going well so far. Zoé is already excited for Hallowe’en and has her costume, hair, and makeup already planned! Meanwhile, Sam seems to be thinking a little further ahead. He asked me this morning why they say, “You’d better watch out” in the song about Santa Claus.
