Lots to do this week, so reduced blogging, but I have been fitting crafting in, of course, it would take a major earth shaking event to stop that. I have managed to start the second half of my spinning project. This single will have the beads spun into it.
I wanted to make an attempt at spacing the beads evenly through the single. This is far from exact but I divided the length of roving up into eighty lengths, one for each bead. There are obvious differences between the lengths so the spacing will not be totally even. At least I will not have masses in one place and none in others, which is what would happen if I left it up to chance.
I have spun a few of the lengths, as with the first single it is thinner than planned, but that makes sense as I am now trying to approximately match the first one. The beads are going in nicely, adding them at the end of the length when it thins out a bit seems to be working. This photo is not great as the flash overpowered the beads, but you can see that there are beads.
Hopefully I will have time at the weekend to make good progress on this single. Once again I am having the dilemma between enjoying the crafting time, but at the same time wanting it to be done already so I can see the finished outcome. I really have no patience! :D
