Spinning surprise

At 7.30 last Saturday morning, as I was ripping back my Rams and Yowes a thought came to me, and it said "spin, you must spin". I haven't sat down at my wheel in over a year, but I was possessed with the desire, the need even, to spin some yarn.
So I went through my unspun wool, and found these:


some yellow polworth I dyed in 2012 and some beautiful red and yellow Mosely Park which I dyed at the same time. I'm going to spin them both up into a heavy laceweight and then knit a two coloured shawl, maybe a stripe study or a different lines. Or, as I originally intended when dying the yarn, maybe a two coloured Romi Hill shawl. Either way I'll have plenty of time to decide, but right now I am really enjoying the process of spinning, basically for its own sake.

    I hope one day to learn to spin, I think I would like it.

    1. It is fun. If you start with a spindle it's minimal commitment.
