Spinning Inspiration

Easter Egg Handspun2
Some of my handspun from last year.

It’s Tour de Fleece time, and again I am not officially participating. I haven’t spun since sometime last winter before I got too big to spin. My wheel is awfully neglected, but knitting on my pogona with handspun yarn has me yearning to spin all of the yarn I knit with. This is completely unrealistic with a newborn around, but a gal can dream.

When I feel the yearning to spin, but can’t quite find the time, I usually wind up browsing handspun available for sale on etsy. The selection is gorgeous–and knowing that I can also create such treasures motivates me to find the time to get my wheel out again. And every now and then, I snap up one of those treasures for myself.

Here’s what I’ve been admiring lately:
