Too much going on!

There has been so much going on in my life the past few months. It's been very stressful and hectic. But, through it all, I've been squeezing in little snippets of time to spin and knit.
I've been working on some camel/tussah silk for a while now. After finishing that singles, I then spun some rambo/romney fleece and plied the two together. I spun each single rather thin, as I was hoping to achieve a 2-ply lace weight yarn. Well...success! Here's a pic of the final yarn. It turned out rather nicely and I'm so pleased with it.

And here are the before shots:

  1. Ah, what beauty! What skill! I love these colors, and I wish that I could give it the full test - you know, the "sniff" test and the "hold it up to my cheek" test.

    I hope that your source of stress burns itself out soon? Hang in there. Sometimes, the only thing holding me together is my spindle and a handful of fiber.


  2. Here Here for Rosemary! I love it so so beautiful! And If I am not mistaken is that a spindle I made with the Cameltusahsilk? Smiles

  3. OOOOOHHHHHHH,AAAAAAHHHHH! Whenever you feel stressed you should meditate on that yarn.
