When I planned to take this past week off from work, I had visions of getting tons of knitting and spinning done. The reality is that I spent so much time in the kitchen, either cooking or cleaning up after cooking, that I got hardly any of either done! So I do not have a finished skein or something even remotely close to one to share today, but I am really enjoying the spin I have in progress.
This is organic merino from Southern Cross Fibre in a colorway called Triumph. It was a club shipment from August 2015. I loved these colors so much that I didn't want to risk muddying them, so once again I'm spinning from one end to the other and will be chain plying*.
This particular stretch of singles is pretty unexciting and dark, but I think it'll be lovely when it's all plied.
*In our Zoom session this morning, we had a brief discussion about chain plying versus Navajo plying. They are the same thing -- creating what's essentially a long crochet chain and adding twist -- but I have learned in recent years that the term "Navajo plying" is really a misnomer because it's not something that Navajo spinners actually do or originated. So I prefer to use the term "chain plying" instead.
