Saturday's Slowness

During quiet time when Bill rested and didn't need me, I spun the pretty navy roving. 
I spun up both bobbins and even began the plying.
I spun off and on for hours while watching Rosemary and Thyme on Netflix.
I like to ply pretty tightly so that it will make a good sock yarn.  The softer (looser) the ply, the more easily it is to have a sock wear too quickly.
These socks will go to my best son-in-law, Bruce. 
Now that the big quilt is done, I dug out some unfinished projects.
I put the rest of the clamshell shapes together and have them all pieced now. 
Then I trimmed the edges to make them squared and even!  
This will be the center of a medallion quilt I have in mind!

  5. all the best for the foot recovery! and the medallion looks very pretty in rainbow colours, what have you planned for the rest of the quilt? the "blues" look good as well - I haven't spun sock yarn for ages, because there's still so much commercially spun of it in my stash! I need more hands....:)

  6. Love the blue -- and Bruce will love a new pair of Grandma-socks!

    The quilt is beautiful -- love how the rainbow is surrounded by puffy white clouds.
