talviknits:

Some fiber porn and spinning photos!

The handpainted rovings are from Freckle Face Fibers: 4.2 ounces of BFL in “Duchess” and Falkland in “Cheeky”.

The brown one is a free 100g sample from Wollinchen that I got when I ordered my wheel (Kromski Sonata). Unfortunately I haven’t written down what it was — if there ever was any label on it — but looking at their photos I’m pretty sure it’s Black Welsh.

knittydelights:

After fighting my way home from central London this evening (25 minute bus ride took 2 hours and as many buses!!) I decided not to go to my knitting group…
…instead I mooches at home and thought I might try spinning this random yellow roving a little, getting it a little thinner. I didn’t realise that I was going to finish it and ply it too. Oops!
So here we have probably 100g roving, chain ply, 103m/112yds, fingering to sport weight.
