I just added a wee post to the Summer Spinning Blog (link in sidebar).
Last night I couldn’t sleep—don’t know if it’s the upcoming flurry of activity around here, residual from a couple movies I’ve watched in the last few days, or hormones, but rather than lying in bed full of frustration, I got up and did some spinning. Something about the rhythm of the wheel soothes the mind, allows it to process whatever needs sorting out and after about 90 minutes I was ready to go back to bed. This is what I was working on……
While at the Wool Market in Estes, I picked up this 2 pound bag ‘o roving from Brown Sheep. While it’s not yummy and soft like the alpaca, it is spinning up really nicely…..
….the variations in color flowing together beautifully—-don’t you think? With 2 pounds of the stuff, there should be enough for a decent size project; a vest or sweater even.
I’m going to keep this short, I’ve just been invited to lunch and must make myself presentable.
