About this time last year my friend Anne passed away having put up a grand fight against cancer.
I was gifted some of her stash (thanks Peter) including this sliver of 75% corriedale, 25% silk from Anna Gratton Ltd.
I spun a single and plied it with navy cashmere commercial yarn.
I don't know what this style of spinning is called (except not very good) but I held the commercial yarn straight and let the handspun semi wrap around it; except when Blindspot got exciting or when I fell asleep and then I found myself reverting to regular spinning.
What, don't you keep spinning while you sleep?
My plan is to knit myself a Pfeilraupe wrap so I'm off to make a tension sample.
