Yes! I love the holidays for a bit of down time to actually spin a bit on my wheel! I’ve been missing it and just relaxing a few days and sitting with my wheel was fabulous. I managed to figure out how to spin from the fold this time around and I love spinning this way. It helps to control the draft zone and the fibre pretty much spins itself with relative ease. This roving I “stole” from one of my latest dyeing sessions and kept it for myself! I rarely do that but every once in awhile, the fibre speaks to me and after hearing how others have enjoyed this blend (merino/nylon) I just had to try a bit myself.
I can’t believe it’s almost 2009 either. Where does the time go?
It’s been a wonderful year of yarn adventures and learning how to spin and I am thankful for all my wonderful customers who let me dabble in colour on a regular basis!
Wishing you and yours a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!
