Photogenic fibre

12 17 kerfuffle spin 2
Handspun singles from a “Bubblegum” Kerfuffle Batt by Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Works.

Have you ever been surprised by a habit you didn’t realize you had until someone points it out to you?

It appears that this year, I formed a mild habit of handspinning fibre. Until I started organizing photographs, I hadn’t realized I was spinning something almost every month of 2017.

I think of it as meditation in motion. The by-product just happens to be pleasingly tactile, beautifully coloured yarn that also looks great under a camera lens (phone camera lens that is).

Below are some of the images I recorded. I am still learning to chain-ply, took a great class on hand carding with Diana Twiss and practiced a bit of knitting too. (All images photographed with iPhone 5 or iPhone 6S. Notecard in mail image by Susan Stephen.

Fibre sources include Crafty Jaks Boutique, Northern Bay Fibres, Legacy StudioKinfolk Yarn and Fibre and Sarah Elizabeth Fibre Works.
