Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Spinninggggggg

So, on Saturday I got my first new bit of squishy mail

So, naturally I had to stop the cross stitch I was doing and make a start spinning it. I did originally aim for a fractal spin but then realised I wanted more than 2 plies so I gave up trying that and just went for it.

The brown is magical. It doesn’t look that pretty by itself (or maybe I’m just biased against brown), but paired with the pink it turns into rubarb and custard, and paired with the turquoise it gives jade and amber. *sigh* It is so smooshy too- it’s jsut spinning a cloud.

And then very quickly I had 4 turtles. Two of them go pink/green/pink/green/pink and the other two go green/pink/green/pink/green so I *really* thought those colours through. Oops! I may have ordered some more to have more fun with it, so I’ll try something else next time (if I can wait!)

Then I made a plying ball, which was a massive new experience for me. The turtles look so cute on their back!

Next step is to ply it all. I’m making a bigger spindle to hopefully get all 100g on it…wish me luck!
