I have been trying something new this year.  I have decided to try and spin at least 15 minutes each day and post my progress on Instagram, I really love my phone so I can snap the photo, tag, and upload in seconds.  The tag is #spin15 ; I think the official tag is much longer but this is the one I can remember so I’m using it.  Because of this I think that spinning will be one of my main focuses this year, but since my Ladybug is so very easy to use (and pull out) I think this will be an interesting goal.  Though I might have to focus a bit, for example tomorrow I’m on the go for about 13 hours and I am working for 13 hours the day after..this might not be too easy but I’ll give it a try.  At least plying won’t be too bad.

This week I am focusing on spinning fine and consistent.  I know, some variations in how the yarn is spun indicate that the product is handmade.  I am not striving for perfection, It will never happen, not to mention I haven’t even been at this a year yet, but I think I want this fiber to stretch pretty far so If I can create a fine and consistent yarn I might be able to knit fingerless gloves with it.  If it is too fine for that I have the option of cabling it or using it to experiment with shawls, something else I plan on working at.  Here is three days worth of patient progress, patience is not one of my virtues.  The fiber being spun are three of the puni’s found in the last picture.  I only have the three left, though I do have a couple of batts in the same colorway I hope to spin next.

Happy Crafting!
