It's "Raspberry Splash", from Hanks in the Hood. With the spindle, I feel that I have more control over the process (this is undoubtedly due to my inexperience with the wheel), and I find it easier to spin a fingering-weight yarn. I may end up plying this on the wheel. That's yet to be determined...
Off the wheel, there's this, the first of my Rhinebeck purchases semi-completed:
This is a nice worsted-weight yarn spun from shetland fleece dyed by Fiber Optics. I'm obviously in a raspberry colour jag. What can I say? The colour becomes me, and it goes with all those bluey-greys in my wardrobe. Now I have to decide what to do with it. Another cowl? Mitts? (I'd probably have to add some commercial wool to eke it out.) NOT a hat; I have a beret I love to wear and don't want another just now. Ideas?
Finally, a second sneak peek at a design currently in progress.
It's a bit wonky looking in its unblocked state, but I can't wait to wear it!
