I've been spinning again and I went for another 3-ply yarn. I really have enjoyed knitting with my handspun 3-ply, so another seemed in order. I think this skein is destined to become another pair of socks.
I really haven't been trying anything new with my spinning. I've reached a comfortable place with my spinning and I enjoy knitting with the yarn I spin. So that has led to a rut of sorts for trying new things.
I've wanted to try and post some spinning tips or describe some of the methods I use for spinning and plying. But I haven't set aside anytime to take photos while I'm spinning. I also wonder what you want to see posted with the photos of my handspun. Maybe the photos by themselves is enough. So what do you think, is something missing from these posts?
I'm going to a fiber festival (SAFF) at the end of October and have signed up for a a couple spinning classes and a class about hand painted rovings. I'm looking forward to the classes and maybe it will give me some new things to share here too.
