In a spin

2013 has started with a lot of spinning.

Firstly I finished the Black Hebridean with a little bamboo blended in. This is a 2ply yarn of DK weight.

Then I started on some of the fibre received for Christmas in a secret santa swap on Ravelry. Here is some Shetland roving 2ply - the skein in the middle. The other skeins are 1ply of the Shetland and 1ply of a batt I spun up that was Romney, Silk, Firestar and Glitz; a lovely sparkly batt.

Planning projects with these yarns now.

More spinning in the works, more pictures to share soon ...
