I'm embarrased to share...

...that my first waking thought today was of spinning. I even briefly considered bringing my spinnig to the mall (instead of my knitting) but decided that it would be a bit much.



Needless to say, I'm really, really enjoying working with this fiber, even though I'm still having to park and draft. And I'm pleased to report that when I'm done with this roving, I'll actually be able to make something. So far I've been consistent -- about thirty yards to the ounce. I wish the photo showed all of the colors -- it's actually more of a teal-ish hue, with blues and purples too. Lovely stuff.

Wow, Julie! I haven't been to your blog for a while. You have become QUITE the knitter extraordinaire!

Can you explain to me why that white yarn you showed a few weeks ago is not knittable??? It looks lovely, and I realize it's uneven, but I thought slubby yarn was in. :scratching head:

Anyway, the new blue stuff is GORGEOUS!!

I found a great farm for wool. The website is homesteadwoolandgiftfarm.com. They charge very little and have great service. How long have you been spinning? (I'm still not good at it)
