Where did the week go?
On Sunday after I'd finished the spinning, I made a box bag that I've had in my mind for a while now. I've made a box bag before, but it was so long ago that I went back to the pattern to refresh my my memory.
Both bags are hand sewn, and I'll be making more of both patterns. I've had the fabrics for those for ages, I've just not been inspired enough to make them up.
Choosing merino for practicing from the fold techniques was not the best decision I've ever made, but I have come so far, I am not going to quit now.
Second ply finished for cable miniskein.
The final from the fold draw is done. This was actually the nicest one of the short backward draws and the nicest one of from the fold. I'll be using this again, but not with merino. Definitely something with a longer staple.
And then I made confetti! I love this yarn. It was fun to spin and it looks awesome. I am super pleased how it turned out.
The penultimate draw. As you can see, I had a rocky start and used up most of the fibre before I reached the other end of the bobbin. Very unintentionally thick-and-thin in the beginning, but it evened out towards the end.
Started the second mini skein of the rainbow fibre, this one will be a crepe.
I did it! I made it to the end of the Craftsy class From Worsted to Woolen, and I spun every draft along the way. I'll probably chain ply all of them, but maybe I should do a 2-ply instead?
The second S single for the crepe is also done.
