An Ounce

An Ounce

Trying something new today in hope of a cure for my lackadaisical blogging of late. Since I post bunches of pics to Flickr most days, & there's this nice app for blogging them directly from my photostream, I thought maybe mini-posts about individual photos would get me going. Not such a big time commitment. Let's see how it goes!

So 'An Ounce' is the final shot of the singles I spun this week for my new project, Hatsie (Rav link). I had these 3 wee bits o' merino fluff lying about in my stash, samples from Perchance to Knit, & I thought it would be fun to spin them together onto my Jenkins spindle (a Turkish Delight), then chain-ply (aka Navajo ply) them into a yarn suitable for a hat. Doesn't look like they'll be enough for that, so we'll see if this stays a 'hatsie' or if it becomes a 'headbandsie' or a 'swatchsie' or something else...

The colors in there are really fun & bright. Started with an apple green, on to purple, then the black/red/blue-green/yellow batt last. I *think* they all go together!
