Back On the Wheel

I started spinning this around Thanksgiving. Then the holidays and my knee injury intervened. It sat and waited.

My knee has finally healed to a point where I can sit and spin for a while again and Maryland Sheep + Wool inspired me to get back to my wheel. Great timing, I say!

I’m going for a sportweight 2-ply. My goal is to ply this more tightly than I normally do. Originally I was thinking mittens, though I am not on that wavelength anymore (probably because it’s in the 80s out there).

    Looks lovely! Will you ply it with more of the same or something else?
