Not All Bad

Life isn't all bad, you know. As evidence, let me present some spindle-spinning.

Barb Parry's 75% Cormo wool/25% silk, spun on a Greensleeves Maureen's Mjolinor.

Random silk, given to me by Marcy because I harangued her to do so, spun on my new Golding.

Now, it's off to work on the other 95% of life.

Wow. That's a pretty impressive 5%!
And, yeah, sometimes fibre and fibre friends are what get you through.

Accomplishment is an antidote to malaise. Your colors are beautiful. If I nag Marcy will she give me silk?

Bezzie said...

Very impressive! I spin thin on my spindle, but that's just amazing!

Elizabeth said...

What was that about me needing to teach you to spin fine?!?! You don't need me dahling!

gayle said...

Wow!
Tell me again what you were saying about being an "okay" spinner...

janel said...

Oh my! don't andean ply that... ask me how I know.

Very beautiful - perhaps you should be teaching "spinning for lace" instead of me!

What spindle are you using?

Batty said...

Wow! That red stuff... I love it. What spindle are you using?

Barb said...

I think Lynn is using the Magic Spindle of the Elves or something...such fine work! It's beautiful.

Marcy said...

Yah, "harangued." Ha! Only if haranguing means me pulling it out and saying, "Here, take this." Silly woman. Don't you go giving people the idea that they can harangue me into giving them fiber!

I like the idea of haranguing Marcy into giving me silk. Shame I'm so far away. Also a shame because if I were closer I could harangue you into walking with us. I could try anyway: go for a walk and tell me about it here, with pictures. Please?

Your spinning is a marvel! Thanks for the kind words-I needed the cheer.

Fellow fiber junkie here... I have a drop spindle (that I've had for ten years, at least) and I have yet to learn to use it. Seeing such lovely spun threads makes me itch to discover the art of spinning. I have it on my list of things I absolutely MUST master before I die (hopefully sooner than later). Enjoyed my visit to your blog.
