Knitting (and spinning! The Good, the Bad, and the UGLY)

Friday, January 25, 2008

Here's my latest project. I'm a relatively new member of Ravelry. One of the spinning groups has a monthly spin along with a different theme each month. Here's January's:

January Spinning Challenge

January’s theme is Indulge Yourself! You’ve spent all December buying gifts for others, running around during the busy season. Use January to spend a little time on yourself and do a little indulgent spinning. Think of guilty pleasures, fibers you’ve been itching to try, techniques you thought you weren’t good enough to do, or use your new Christmas gifts.

This challenge is for anyone, beginners or skilled spinners. There are only two requirements to participate in any challenge.

1. Start and complete at least one skein (of any length) of yarn fitting the challenge theme during the month of the challenge.
2. Your yarn must be spun on a spindle (drop or support). After all, that is what we’re here for :)
3. Post a photo of your completed yarn before the last day of the month. If you’ve posted in progress pictures, but no completed photo your yarn will not be entered.

As soon as we’ve collected all the submitted entries, a randomized winner will be chosen. This person will get to choose the next months challenge, and a photo of their handspun will be posted on the Spindlers main page.

I thought I would share with you my entry. IMG_1054_edited
Sample of Angora from The Rosefield bought at SAFF 2007. Spun on 25mm Tiger Eye supported spindle from The Sanguine Gryphon.


I had never seen a spindle so small! It isn't easy to spin with, but I love the results.

What do you think?
