turning through the year

Happpy new year to all the blog readers out there...

I haven't been doing lots of spinning lately, I've been dreaming of getting a spinning wheel, which will have to wait until we've bought a house, which should we any day now...

Anyways, I've been taking this pretty machine-blended merino

bluegreeny merino

and have been turning it into a very fine single.

handspun merino

I'm hoping when it's plied to get a nice heavy laceweight. Eventually. Did I mention I have 200 grams of the stuff, and since I started it on the spindle, it'll end on the spindle too? Expect to see the finished product in about an eon or so.
