Spinning is one of my favorite things to do. Takes me to a wonderful, peaceful place with very few distractions. Of course, it also helps that I'm doing it in the middle of the night! Even so, there is something creative and tranquil about the feel of prepared fiber slipping through my fingers on the way to the spindle or wheel. Currently I'm working on a bump of fiber from a online shop called Loop. This is the photo from the advertisement:
Here's a shot of the bump after I started spinning the olive green section at the center of the bump.
Here is a shot of the bobbin with the singles in progress:
As I've worked with this fiber, I've thought about making my own interesting color combinations, but doing up the colors as separate small batts from my drum carder. Perhaps blending a small bit of the colors so that the progression is smoother between the colors.
But that is an experiment for another day.... I remember how long the color study took me to finish!
