Another week done ~ Spin like the Wind

On the Cocobolo spindle I am spinning up a yummy blend of 80/20 merino/tussah in colorway called Venetian that I purchased I believe from Frecklefaced girl. I got a littl over 7 ounces. I just love the colorway. I was going through that blues/greens mode lol. This is what it is looking like.

Well I am going to start to spin this awesomely beautiful, yummy squishy soft fiber. It is a 50/50 blend of camel and tussah silk that I purchased from Far Out Farms at the Januaru Spin-in that was held in Destin, FL last month. The colorway is called Starbirth and I purchased 2 - 2 oz. containers of this color. I think I will make a nice lace scarf to wear. I did spin a little up on the Kundert but I feel that the spindle is a little too heavy at 1.4 ounces. So I will spin it up using my traditional wheel.

It is 3:27 Saturday morning and I still have to do a little knitting on my lace bed socks that are entered in the Team Bluemoon Ravelypics team Hockey Socks. I need to take another picture to post on ravelry of the socks. Anyway I need to post picture of my weft colors for my first weaving project. I am hoping to have my first lesson on Tuesday. Well will have pictures later today from the Train Show we're going to see later today in Houston!! Have a wild an crazy, but safe and warm weekend y'all!
