So I come home from work early three Friday's ago (because I had to work on the Saturday afternoon) and my parents mentioned to me that a parcel arrived from Israel. As I was expecting my drop spindle from Galia's Spindle Designs, who is located in Israel, this was very, very, very exciting.
Needless to say I have been spinning like crazy since then.
This is my first real handspun. It is from the Merino I picked up at the Gateway Fibreworks. It is only 10ish grams and is a DKish weight. I find the colors remind me of a good friend from University. Jessie, who I associated with turquoise and canoeing, was the victim of some of my early knitting adventures. It is in her honor that I spin this first yarn.
I have the remainder of the 2oz of merino and I am making 3 singles, I am not quite sure how I am going to ply it, but I still have a final single to spin.
