The Spin The Bin Challenge for 2015? I finished!
Of course now you get to hear about the last item until you’re sick of it.
I had this much left of the Sheep 2 Shoe.
I pulled off about a staple length at a time, laid two side by side sort of spread out, then rolled them around a piece of PVC pipe to make what spinners call a Fauxlag.
I got a basket full of them out of this last two ounces of fiber.
Then I spun them up long draw. I still need a whole lot of practice with that method, but boy it’s fast. I got about 138 yards out of it.
You can see how inconsistent it is. I’ll get better, it’s just a matter of practice.
I was very pleasantly surprised how quickly the fauxlag making went. I’ve got several braids of fiber in there I think I’ll work up to spin. And now I have to decide what goes in the 2016 bin.
My boys enjoy the sunshine.
And Brandi Boo is very spoiled.
She decided that was a good place to hide from the mean vacuum today.
On the knitting front, I’ve only worked on the Bent scarf. And it’s really coming along.
I kind of wish I’d made the last section a little narrower, but not enough to rip back and change it. If I knit another one (and I can see doing that) I’ll probably make that change.
