Taking a break from knitting this week to finish up some spindle spinning.Â It’s a soft grey undyed wool, breed unknown, since it was purchased several years ago at an estate sale with many other bags of fiber.
My reading selection this week is a bit boring – mostly books on fruit-tree cultivation and pruning.Â All of our young fruit trees are ready to have their central leaders lopped and I need to get serious about how they will be pruned and shaped, so it’s time to brush up on the subject.
The singles that resulted from spinning on this tiny burl-whorled spindle are fluffy, laceweight, and a bit overspun so that I can ply them back.Â There will be enough 2-ply for some very special baby knitting (booties and a hat?Â little vest?).
Many thanks to Ginny for hosting the Yarn Along and Nicole for KCCO, as well as all the other knitters Â and crafters who share their projects and recommend some great reading each week.
