So this week I added a new element to my Storied Yarns shop – Spinning Fiber! I now handpaint roving/top in addition to yarn. Here are the examples of what I’ve got so far:
For my spinning this week, I spun up a mini skein of that Persephone colorway to see how it would look.
I love the way the two colors are working together. I ended up with 190 yards of the light pink and 325 yards of the dark pink, so it’s working out well to have enough to make the ruched bands out of the light pink and the rest of the shawl in the dark pink. I will start with the standard five pattern repeats but I’m hoping to have enough yarn to get through a sixth one if I can. My other shawls from last week’s post are in a time-out until I finish this because Grandmom’s birthday is this month. Once this is done it’ll be back to the great Fountainhead vs. Multnomah race!
What have you been up to in the fiber arts this week? Go on over to Andrea’s blog and check out the fun!
