I am currently on a much needed study break for Easter which can mean only one thing... as much spinning as I can possibly do in a short space of time! Of course I wanted to start with a celebration of
Easter, one of my favourite times of year! Spring is on its way, the trees are starting to blossom and I find myself inspired by the changing colours of this time of year! So I had a rummage through my fibre stash and found 5 pastel spring colours to combine.
First I used these stunning colour to make a thick and thin yarn base. Then I used a golden wool yarn to ply with and used differential tension to spiral the thick parts of the fleece around the golden yarn. Then pushed this up and anchored in place to make these merino coils. To my great joy the resulting yarn looks like a bunch of mini Easter eggs, which couldn't make me happier if it tried!
I think this yarn might be used in a weaving project to add some gorgeous texture. Although first it will just sit in a yarn bowl on the coffee table over Easter. The good news is there is still plenty of time left to spin over this mini break so next project is some art batt core spun.. ooh exciting!
