Ok, here is our girl…stubbornly looking more and more pregnant. This has gone on FOREVER. Really though…doesn’t this picture read ‘PREGNANT’???
I spun on the new spinning wheel yesterday and made a nice little skein of yarn with some of the mystery roving. I didn’t mix it like I had in the drop spindle yarn, just used the heathery green/blue without the royal. It’s about 65 metres.
This gave me some nerve to try spinning the beautiful roving I got for my birthday so I started with the BFL.
It’s so soft and slippery, apparently NOT what they recommend to learn with but I love going against them……..
Isn’t it just too pretty roving! I’m really enjoying it after all the blue/green I’ve seen lately.
Oh, and I think I know why spinners sell their yarn – because they can’t tear themselves away from spinning long enough to knit it!
Here’s a picture of the beautiful flowers/planter my kids gave me for my birthday…my middle daughter made sure she went out without me to surprise me with it 🙂
