Mabel’s Getting Lonely

I kind of felt bad for starting a new spinning project when there’s still work to be done on my WIP list, but then I realized I haven’t done any spinning since July – yikes! It was about time Mabel got some attention.

The finished yarn is probably going to be a cowl for my brother so I chose this purplish colour from FatCatKnits. My brother does wear a lot of purple, but I really chose it for its name – it’s called ‘Sid’ (technically after this guy here) which just so happens to be the name of his workplace.

I’m still a beginner spinner, so I always predraft. It’s amazing how much it fluffs up – this here is only half of it!

Several episodes of Upstairs Downstairs later I had two bobbins of single ply yarn. I’m going to let it rest up a bit to set the twist, and then tomorrow we ply!

Of course, I can’t get anything done without Cosmo, my little crafting companion!
