Spinning Report

I carded the first 60g batt on Sunday but didn't get a chance to spin it until this evening.

I seem to be doing a lot of spinning lately. Probably because I can zone out while I'm doing it. Weaving the bright kimono warp was very relaxing, but I haven't had time to sew the kimono or plan a new warp. (Yes, June, the dark band will go along the neck opening of the kimono)

Here's one of the skeins from the recarded Lambspun.

These skeins were softly spun from a merino batt from Bonkers

So soft and spongy - I can't stop squeezing them. I may need to keep them with me for the next few days. Graduation tomorrow afternoon and then another weekend spent in class.


  1. Oh, I LOVE your softly spun spongy skeins. I want to squeeze, too. Please bring to show and tell at Marie's.

  2. Spinning therapy sounds wonderful right about now! The skeins are terrific!

  3. Hi Charleen,
    Those are some nice balls, of fiber. ;)
    Ms. Yarnhead Kate pointed me in your direction as one who has a Duncan motorized and I would like to ask you for your opinion and info on your carder. Could you tell me how you like it and how many times you have to put batts through to get them the way you want, and maybe what types of fibers you've carded on it (is the cloth as fine as the PG?) Any info you can share will help me make a decision.
    Thank you!

  4. Your skeins are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!
