Getting my Spin On

I got my spinning MoJo back... thanks largely to my very good friend Laura (Artygal on Ravelry) She goes to a couple of local guilds, and borrowed a blending board from one of them and brought it to KnitClub. Well, of course I had to have a play, and made some little rolags, and span them up as 'homework' ... and that is all it took to get me hooked again.

This 3 ply was a joy to make, due largely to the beautiful ingredients :)

(Top Left: SCF Polwarth, Top right: JulieSpins Merino and bottom is some merino I dyed aaages ago, thought I had felted it but it just needed 're-educating' :p)

I have enough of the fibre left to make maybe another 100g, so enough to do something with... maybe :P 

I am just really happy that:

a) I can still Spin
b) I actually WANT to spin again

I have called this awesome creation 'Coming Home' ...

Yay! Lucky you getting to play with a blending board. It looks so fun. The yarn looks great. I think spinning is probably like riding a bike, you never really forget.

I am spinning right now and getting my mojo back after my foot breakage!

I'm considering improving my spinning - was thinking about classes on craftsy.

Either that or trying carding / blending.
