Two Projects Here

There are actually TWO new projects here in these pictures.  The topmost pretty pink on the spindle is my supported spindle project on a Texas Jeans russian walnut spindle.  The spindle is magnificent to spin as the flicking tip is very fine and spins incredibly fast and easily.  The fiber is a blend of merino and tencel in pink, peach, and silky white and is gorgeous.  The spindle is resting on my handspun raglan cardigan, in progress.  It will be a top-down cardigan with a shawl collar.  The yarn is 3-ply handspun polwarth and silk wool and is about a sport weight.  The pictures were taken last night in the fading sunlight on my boat as we travel up the Chesapeake Bay on our way to St. Michaels.
