Look! Spinning!

OK, I know you've got to be getting tired of this but do you see what it is? It's a new bobbin of the Ice Blue Merino Top! Yes, this is the start of the second bobbin. Why you should care (or at least be nice and pretend to care) is that somewhere in the middle of this bobbin I will pass the midpoint of this spinning project. Unless I'm seriously having math problems this morning, 3 fibers spun into singles on 3 bobbins each equals 9 bobbins, so the midpoint is 4 1/2 bobbins, right? I think I've also figured out a way to make the spinning go faster on this top. Since it's solid colored, it's not really that exciting to spin and since I was spinning from a long snake of it, it was hard to see how much I had gotten done. So, I decided to pull the long snake into 4 smaller snakes and now I'll know where I am on the bobbin. This should help to keep me motivated and knowing that the last three bobbins will be of handdyed fiber with color variations will also inspire me.

By the way, I promise you will not have to look at a bobbin of singles from this project more than once a week from here on out. Now if I start another project on my other wheel, I might show it to you every 20 minutes, but this project, once a week. Tops.

Well I think it's a lovely picture! Your wheel is just beautiful, I love the wood.

I agree ... spinning solid colors, especially in a fine yarn, can tend to get boring. But even multicolored yarn, if there is a lot of it, can get boring.

Beautiful yarn! Keep up the good work!

It might get boring, but it's still lovely!

i think this is great, but then i am a non-spinner - so far! i am truly tempted, but i know i don't have the time right now, so i am disciplining myself. so as consolation, what i want to see is a picture of you actually doing it! then i really can go 'a-a-ah'!! ;)

Well, call me a spinning geek, but I like seeing what's on the bobbins! This is going to be gorgeous yarn!
