Gee, could spinning 5oz of laceweight singles in a 24 hour period on my wheel have anything to do with why my ankles and lower legs hurt? Seriously, like 450 yards or something. I got a little carried away. (You think?) I was determined to finish the awful Malabrigo Nube that had been sitting untouched on my wheel for three weeks. Did that, and then wanted to start something nicer. And I kinda of fell in love with my wheel all over again now that it didn’t have awful fiber on it, and… I maybe overdid it a little. It was wicked fun, though. The non-awful fiber was this:
And oh was it lovely to spin. It was soft but not super-soft, and after the Malabrigo Nube (which is pure merino) it felt nice to spin something with a little bite to it. Also, loooooooooooooooooong staples were lovely after the little short merino fibers. And, happily, I have another AliCat braid in pinks and purples I can spin up — after my ankles recover!
