Week 14: Motion

spinning motion
The theme for week 14 was motion. On the same week, there was a spinning challenge on my favorite group in Ravelry. I had to finish spinning a self-imposed amount of spinning by Sunday evening. Since spinning is motion I combined the weekly photo-theme with the spinning challenge.  I took the photo using  my camera on self-timer and tried to keep the spindle in front of the lens.  This was not easy as usually the spindle moves down while I try to keep my hands in the same place.  The picture above is where I was flicking the spindle to set it in motion.

Here is the other picture of me spinning that worked:

Both photos fit the theme really well but I chose the top one as I liked the blurred effect.  However, the comments showed me that non-spinners found it hard to both see and know what is going on, so perhaps the second picture would have been more helpful.  And the spindle is clearly in motion.

The fiber I am spinning was Gnomespun Shetland Combed Top.  I am currently plying two singles together and hope to knit the Juneberry Triangle when the yarn is ready.
