Little accomplishments along the way

As I’ve mentioned a few times, I’m participating in a challenge to spin everyday in April. It’s day 15 now and I’ve hung in there. I believe I talked about how this challenge would allow me to spin for myself along the way. I am happy to say that just in 15 days, spinning for myself has allowed me to try a few different things with my yarn. I attempted some slubs (although they might be the messiest ones out there) out of my own dyed roving and bits of wool from the Phat Fiber box…then some beehives on a super textured, plied yarn spun from some gorgeous roving from CloudloverAnd tonight I tried my hand at corespinning from some cheapo acrylic yarn as the base and a lovely Hobbledehoy batt (one of her Galaxy batts)…I’m beaming from what I’ve accomplished so far. I can’t imagine I would have tried these out this month if it were not for this challenge. Oh, I would have eventually tried them out, but certainly not in April… and probably not in May… even June might be stretching it a bit.

This corespinning (all 51 yards of it) has worn me out. I’m going to go plop down and watch some Ghost Hunters. Goodnight!

Edit: Hey everyone – do fibery posts make you super happy? They make me happy! If you’re like me, then go over to the Fiber Arts Friday listing and check out all kinds of fibery blog posts, you wont’ be sorry.

  1. This post has me smiling from ear to ear. How wonderful that the challenge has really opened things up and let you try move outside of “the usual”. I’m dying to start spinning. Have a class scheduled in May to learn. Thanks for the inspiration. Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  2. These colors are gorgeous! And as a yarn dummy, I had no idea you could spin yarn in so many different ways, I’m intrigued!
