The wool roving that Frankie and I dyed is now dry and braided.
I have about 3 1/2 ounces of each color so it will be really fun to practice with.
My spinning lesson was two weeks ago today. This week was spent spinning this:
The top skein was the first two bobbins plied together and the bottom skein is the one I finished last night. So, my spinning improved between the first and second batches. That means that I have 640 yards of yarn in two different weights. Oh, well!!! The roving was from JulieSpins. It’s 85% Humbug BFL and 15% silk.
I’m really looking forward to going to camp in about two weeks and having some experts around me to gain insight from. I know there are some things I could be doing differently to make the process smoother. For now, I’m pretty pleased with where I’m at. At least I won’t make a total fool of myself at camp!
Remember all the gorgeous photos I showed you of my back yard this fall??? Those days are over. It’s rainy and 41 degrees here today. The wind is gusting to 43 mph and by later today, we could see wind gusts to 60 mph. The barometric pressure is the lowest here that it’s ever been. It’s lower than some of the hurricanes that have hit the Caribbean. Gotta love Minnesota!
So…there’s a roast in the crock pot. I think it’s going to be a quilting day.
