I apologize. It's been a while. I've been quite busy over the last few months and haven't been able to keep up with blogging. I'm still knitting whenever I get a chance, but I've also taken up another obssession. I got a spinning wheel at the end of last summer and have recently started to get into it. Still need practicing. Not very consistent with the twists and my plying needs work. Here I have Fiber Optic Yarns Foot Notes Unspun in Honeysuckle Rose. I just started spinning this so do not have progress pictures yet.

I signed up for Crown Mountain Farms Fiber Club. This roving here is the first of many. It's a Falkland Top in the colourway Awakenings. This colour is the colour of the month. Love the colours. Can't wait to spin this!

This roving is for February's fiber. It's a Finn Top in the colourway Shiva/Shakti. Not sure if I like the colours, but we'll see how it spins up.

This one was also from January's fiber, but choose the colour Bacchus. The colours don't really do well in the picture, but it's kinda like purple and pink with coral. I finished navajo-plying it and is currently resting, so hopefully I'll be able to have better pictures of the finished product.

This finished product is from Fiber Optic Yarns and is also Foot Notes Unspun in the colourway Lazy River. It's navajo-plied as well. This came out to be a DK weight and approximately 170 yards.

This one is also from Fiber Optic Yarns. Foot Notes Unspun in the colourway Black Coffee. I made The Yarn Harlot's One Row Scarf and gave it to my kid's caregiver for Christmas.
I'll try to have more pictures of my spinning next time.
