I have finished spinning my Melon and Orange fibre. There is about 25g and it has spun up very finely. I hve another 25g to spin up but I have decided a change is as good as a rest so.....

I am starting the green today on another spindle. This is also 25g, with another 25g batt in my bag for later. Next time I do some dyeing I shall make larger quantities of them - perhaps 100g now I feel more confident.

Melons and Oranges

It feels as though I haven't spun for a long time. I have been knitting little hats for Africa and little hat and jumper sets for a friends charity stall. It's good to get my hands back on some fibre and a spindle : )

About a year ago I dyed this merino using some steam-fix silk dyes, just to see what would happen.
I have finally got round to spinning it up and it looks lovely. I like the way it has spun into a mix of melon and orange. When it is plied it should be about sock weight I think.
