Spunday: The Emphasis on Uni

Happy Spunday!

I’m excited to say I finished my first bobbin of singles in my Unicorn alpaca.

I’m disappointed in how this is turning out (which is why the bobbin is not full). It is not even at all and I don’t think that I chose the right way to blend the colors. I’m hoping the second singles will bring life to each other and that the finished project is something to be proud of…and something cute because I really love the colorway.

I have a feeling this upcoming week will be a hard drag. Hopefully there will be time for spinning and if I’m lucky I’ll have another finished singles for next week! If I’m really lucky I’ll have a finished skein!

So now its your turn! What’s on your wheel?

Remember the party continues on Instagram #spundays and @threadybear!

One Skein Down

Happy Friday!

I honestly can’t believe how productive I’ve been this week!

That being said, my finish is my first skein of yarn that I handspun on my new spinning wheel.

Its about 38 yards made of some unknown wool in reds/browns/aquas. I originally wasn’t keen on the colorway but its growing on me.

Its no where near perfect but I’m happy with my first finish
