Rhymes With Fuchsia

Thursday, August 28, 2008


It had been probably four or five months since I last went to spinning group, partly because the group hadn't met for over two months. So I wasn't about to miss tonight's meeting.

That's Miss B in the middle. She figured she'd better seize the moment, as she'll have ballet on Thursday nights starting next week. There were a bunch of people I knew there (note my brilliant photography of the back of Lynne's head) and several I hadn't met.

I finished Navajo plying a bobbin I spun in Rangeley; the single broke several times, so there are some wonky spots — I'm sure it's possible to deal with yarn breaks while Navajo plying so as to leave no trace that they ever happened, but I'm not there yet — but I'm pretty happy with the way it came out.

And, man, I hate to think of winter's approach, but there are definite compensations.


  • What a fun setting for the spinning. Where is it?

  • I didn't know that Maggie has a woolee winder.

  • I think it's easier to rejoin your broken ends while you're Navajo-plying than when you're doing a 'standard' ply. There's more room for fudging. ;-) Just overlap the two ends generously, and if one of them sticks out later on, just trim it off. No one will ever know, especially once you've knitted the yarn. ;-)

  • Did she grow like 6 inches or more since spring?? She's gone from girl to young woman... yikes!
