Sunday Play

So, today was a little overcast and I needed to add a little color to it.Β  What do you think? πŸ™‚

I took this fluff that I got from an etsy seller by the name of Esther of Studio Woolwork.Β  Look at how bright that stuff is! It was really curly and I wanted to see what it would look like mixed up and combed out.

Okay. This didn’t work at first.Β  The curls were just tooΒ  much for the combs.Β  I had to brush it out with a dog brush that I use like a flicker, load it back on the combs, comb it out…and then, I got this…

…which I promptly spun into this.

I used one of my tiny Turkish Spindles from Threads Thru Time.Β  This one is Tootie Frootie.Β  Fun!

Unfortunately, it didn’t help me get this done, lol.

But I only have a little bit of it left, so I’m on schedule.

Besides, weekends are for taking breaks, right? πŸ™‚

    Interesting, and colorful experiment, Stacey, Brave Woman πŸ™‚ [yes it is ok to take a break from
    the less colorful project…in my opinion…since you asked :)]

    • Thanks, Gracie! Sometimes I just like to do silly things. It keeps things interesting for me. Not sure those curls really want to be straightened out like that. I know the ones on my head don’t, lol! But, until I figure out what exactly I want to do with them in the end, it was fun!

      And about the color, I knew there would be an understanding soul out there. πŸ™‚

    Ooooh I wish I could get the hang of spinning. I need to find someone who can she me how in person. Books and online tutorials just aren’t helping.

    • I wish I could help you get started…I tried years ago and it just didn’t work out the first time around for me no matter what I did either. My first spindles sat in a bag for over seven years until I had the nerve to try it again. It didn’t help me then. I’m curious though…which online tutorials and books have you tried so far?

  3. Yes that fiber definately adds some color!

    • I don’t know what it is…but I like spinning bold colors better than muted, monochromatic colors. I knit with them all the time. But, just spinning them…Well, I just think I like “YAY COLOR!!” better than, “Meh, color.” LOL!

  4. Oh that Turkish Spinner is so beautiful. And the curly yarn is gorgeous.

  5. Looks like a lot of work but beautiful color combo.
