Resurfacing briefly after teaching summer session. Intro Chemistry in 5 weeks is hard on the lecturer as much as on the students. Kudos to the students who completed the 5 weeks!
During the five weeks the tour de fleece took place, which is spinners way of watching cute men in tight lyric while doing their favorite thing, making new yarn. I managed to spin a little very day even if only a yard or so. And it help, I am improving. It helped that I bought two new spindles at Maryland Sheep and Wool back in May.
First up: The Breeze from Spinabit
The Breeze weights 45 g and keeps on going. I love it. The yarn is part of the Rambouillet I bought to spin into a sweater. I have nearly 2 lbs, so it might take me a while.
Second up: Bosworth Mini
Bosworth spindles are made by Jonathan Bosworth and have quite a reputation. I wanted a light weight spindle to round out my collection and I was happy to get this one.
To show how much I like it, I just spun an ounce of Shetland into singles in a week. Here is an in progress picture:
