This really was labour of love. I enjoyed spinning the gorgeous merino/silk but three ply really does seem to take a long time. THREE bobbins. And then the plying. Although with the e-spinner the plying is speedy and painless.
This is not the best photo but it does show the colour quite well. However, it is shinier and, well, nicer than in the photo.
Now I am finishing off a chair for a friend. Their daughter has trained to be an upholsterer and is now working in England so the chance of her finishing it in the near future is low. It is very strange to be working on something that someone else has started. Inevitably she has done things differently to me and I have to think around the challenges that arise as a result. I hope it will be finished this weekend so photos next week.
