A little bit of spinning!

Hi friends!

I’ve been trying to craft diversely lately, because although not as acute as it was, my persistent wrist soreness/numbness/weirdness is persisting. I’m hoping that keeping my fiber hobbies a bit more spread out and varied will help!

I’m only a novice spinner, but that’s okay with me. I have lots of gorgeous spindles, all made for me by my extremely talented brother-in-law. He’s a skilled cabinetmaker, but he’s also made me spindles, knitting needles, and some insanely gorgeous custom wooden PENS with my name engraved on them! I married into a family with some amazing skills :)

Anyway, back to the spinning! This fiber was a gift from my mom – it’s from Farmable Fibers, and it’s a mix of 80% merino and 20% bamboo.

I’m trying to spin it with the intention of using it as fingering/heavy fingering weight singles. Because I don’t plan to ply it, I’m trying to add just enough twist but not too much.

Do you spin? Tell me about it! :)
