Moving has certainly put a big dent in my spinning practice. It’s only the last couple of weeks that I’m anything like “normal” in that regard.
At any rate, I’ve finally finished the first half of the Apples fractal
spinning project that I’ve been working on, oh, forever. This was the part where I spun one half the braid, split longwise, in one go. That is how you get the longer color changes that create half of the fractal effect.
The other half has been split (also longwise) into 4 pieces, so the colors will change 4 times quicker. When you ply them together it’s beautiful!
I just realized it’s been almost two months since my last post. Wow.
My excuse is that I’m in the process of moving – we built a new house on the opposite corner of the greater Columbia area from our old house and have been slowly moving our stuff.
The exciting part is that in our new house I have a 400 square foot studio where I can exercise, do all my fiber stuff, AND have my workbench for all my metal/jewelry work. Finally.
So to get myself back in that metal-work groove, I’m committing to 100 days of work, and blogging about it to keep myself honest. That worked really well when I was learning to spin.
So those posts are coming, starting later today after I work on today’s project. Of course, I’m still spinning & knitting, almost halfway through the spinning for the “apples” fractal I talked about in my last post. That work has suffered too, in the move, but I’m getting back on track there too.
