My wips at the moment are two spinning projects, a 2x2 ribbed hat for a homeless shelter and a baby sweater for a church member who i about 6 weeks till due, unfortunately are not patterns on this platforms :(. Altho when done with the alpaca spin, I will be choosing a hat here to knit out of it ;).


The first spin is wool, spinning it as a fractal, the first bobbin has all the colors in a longer run (1/2 the braid) the 2nd bobbin you see I’ve started, has all the colors, in shorter colors (the other 1/2 of the braid stripped into thirds) spun back to back in the same color order, then plied together. some times the colors will over lap and some will be barber polled. The other spin is a dark brown alpaca :llama:, it also has a finished bobbin of singles and I’ve started the 2nd bobbin. Not sure what I’ll make with the fractal spin, but the alpaca I’m spinning to be a hat for a friend. Ignore my jerry rigged lazy kate on the alpaca (shoebox using straight knitting needles for it to ply ;p), I’m saving up to get one made since they don’t make them for my Rick Reeves spinning wheel any more. ;p.

Maybe some day you will try spinning, it’s easily the most peaceful calming thing I do, even more than my knitting, and I love my knitting. It has a slight learning curve, but then most things do, there’s just something about the rhythmic treadling and the softness of the fibers going through your fingers that grounds and calms. And maybe knitting or crocheting with your own yarn :yarn: ;p.

Mr Reeves was a local Spinning Wheel maker in IA and he got sick some years back and retired and had to close his business. Another spinning wheel company took over but they aren’t making replacements for the older wheels. I did find a woodworker on Etsy who’s sister use to sell these wheels in her spinning shop so he’s very familiar with the wheels. I had him make me 2 bobbins (they are peculiar and had to be custom made to fit the wheel) because when I got it (it was given to me) it only had one bobbin and you really need 3 bobbins, 2 to hold single strands you’ve spun, and an empty one to ply them onto for a double ply yarn. When I have him make me a lazy kate, I may have him make me two more bobbins in case one gets damaged!

That’s a sad story!! :weary:

In my mind I see an old German man with white hair, wearing brown pants, a shirt, and a brown vest wearing glasses. He’s peering over his glasses as he wrestles a bobbin into a spinning wheel. Various tools are in his vest pockets threatening to spill out unprovoked.

Then he gets sick……….:frowning:
