Spring spinning

In addition to the aurora batt of the last post, I’m working on a few other spinning projects. I’m trying to branch out this year into less comfortable territory, whether it’s the fibre itself or the technique. In other words, I probably won’t be making any chain-plied wool skeins on my wheel. I’m going to focus on spindle spinning (especially on my support spindles), silk, and cotton, and maybe some thicker yarns too. For a while now I’ve been in the ranks of experienced spinners who default to fine yarn because, well, it’s easier. Two birds with one stone (spindle and higher diameter yarn) are coming from this nice Merino top I picked up in Montreal (which I’m way overdue to visit again):
