Loving the Spin

This really was a fun spin. Nice long fiber that just glided out of my fingers, as I spun into the afternoon.
I added just the right amount angelina to the fiber as I spun, to give a glimmer of sparkle.
I'm thinking spring violets, when I look at the finished skein. 4 oz. and 284 yds.
Off to the Wool Cave it goes to join the others.

Take a Spin on the Rough Side

I'm really enjoying spinning this Lincoln long wool. Not the softest, but doses everything have to be as soft as a babies bottom? There are alot of interesting fibers out there to spin and dye. Half the fun is experimenting and trying something new.

On to the softer side. I finally finished the merino, angora, sari silk, and poodle hair yarn.
Very soft.....should bloom nicely once I start knitting with it. Into the wool cave it goes for now, til I decide what to knit.

View out my Window

Feeling tranquil as I spin, watching the falling snow and birds eat seed off the railing.
