Just curious....what are you spinning now and what will it be used for?

I finish spinning my cat hair/wool blend, plying it, and then knit it into a change purse. It's blocking now. I'll hopefully sew it up late this evening.

I'm not sure what I want to spin for next.....hmmmmmm. :??

I just finished plying (like 5 minutes ago) one of my thank-you yarns, an interesting blend: 70% navajo churro, 30% mohair. It's a bit on the scratchy side but it turned out well. There's a pic of the first half here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/35852854@N00/254200767/in/set-72157594302401164/)...now I just have to give the second half a bath, dry it, and send it on its merry way. :D

I'm torn as to what to start next, because the next person on my list requested 100g of sock yarn, and while I can do that with the spindle, it would be sooooo much quicker on the wheel! I think I might start on the next one on my list, in the hopes that the wheel will arrive this week.

*runs off to dye some more roving*

Wow you've been busy. I decided to make a dent in my merino. Plain white with not real project in mind WPI is about 30.

:shifty: If that's me, I can either wait for your wheel or if it's easier I'll take whatever that beautiful roving is above this post :shifty:

Julie! I can't wait!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: Puuuuuuuurple!

Pixie, that's gorgeous! :inlove: !

I am only in the Spinning forum because I'm stalking Julie, but I want to say "hi" :waving: I just started listening to your podcast and you are so cute! You make me laugh while I'm driving around aimlessly at work. Thank you for that! :muah: :hug:

You also make me want to learn how to spin! That is probably a bad thing though! :teehee:

you are only a true knitter if you can spin your own yarn MUHAHA!!

Just Kidding, but it is really cool to know how, even if you don't stick to it. Just get a spindle and some wool :)

The first time I read this topic, I thought you mean "What is spinning?" as in what it was. :oops:
