i have been busy. sometimes so busy spinning that i fail to blog. over the past few months, among other projects in the works, i have spun these skeins. for those of you who don’t know how long this process takes, this little photo is about 25-30 hours of fun.
the skein of the left is one i blended personally. that means i took 5 different colors and combed them together and then spun it. it came out just as i wanted, like a river bed. the next two are merino silk blends, and the pale green on the far right is a soft wool from Jane Patrick’s stash.what am i going to do with them? i don’t really know. i was in a spinning spurt and couldn’t stop! sometimes i think that i will blog when i have a project done, but that isn’t really an accurate portrayal of what i do. of course things go in stages. sometimes i have a project in mind when i spin, but most of the time i seem to collect. i collect objects, roving, yarn, beads, etc. and when the spirit moves me, i create! so i thought i would show some of the process in progress. these are all pieces of a puzzle, waiting to come together. i trust what the fiber tells me to do and all the pieces turn into a wonderful whole.
