Mosaic Monday : : handspun edition
Roving to singles to plied skeins.
The blues and the pinky oranges were spun into chunky bulky yarns, while the one on the bottom right was spun as finely as I could possibly manage and yielded a pleasing 375 metres (they were all from 100 gram bundles of roving). I have a similarly dyed braid of roving yet to be spun, and if it spins up to be close enough in tone, I can combine the two skeins and have a significant amount of my very own handspun yarn to play with. In other words, more than one sleeve or teacosy worth.
I foresee many enjoyable hours lost in the seductive web that is Ravelry, on the quest for the right pattern.
In other news, the children returned to school today after the summer holidays. They all pronounced it an "awesome" summer, yet all were happy to return to school and catch up with their tribes. Can someone tell me though, how on earth it came to pass that I have children in Years 10, 8 and 5?
