The time has been spinning around!
And spinning with a spindle takes its time too, I can tell you.
The two skeins are my first attempt at Navajo plying. Its is a three ply yarn, 60 gr of it for over 200 meters. It is much less itchy than my first yarn and fine enough to be included into some socks.
We are having an ideal weather for dyeing yarn so I enjoyed myself and mixed some more colours for yet some more sock yarn!
And because this blog is supposed to be about quilting too, I unearthed a UFO from at least 7 years ago which is waiting for some appliqué and machine quilting. As I looked at it again, I had the idea with the appliqué. I will add ragged edge flowers on the border. They will be out of the same fabric I used for the bricks: a brushed cotton maded in Germany. To make the patches I sewed samples from samples booklets I had bought at their factory outlet.
I don´t know yet when I will finish this UFO though as I have two knitting projects on the go and my DH made me a spindle which I have to try very soon!
I wish you a nice sunday and a healthy week.
