I've made the executive decision to make Sunday spinning day. So after Catie was in bed, I broke out the spinning wheel. By the way, I haven't named her yet. She's a Majacraft Rose. Rose and its variations would be too predictable. Any suggestions?
So anyway, I'm getting better at the joining new fiber thing. Still have a tendency to break the yarn, but it's not nearly so bad as it was the other night. Here's a pic of my first skein. It's a medium wool. A Lincoln-something cross. I just set the twist yesterday, so it's been hanging on the back porch to dry. Not bad. Not good by any means. But it certainly could be worse. I don't know if I'll do anything with it, or just save it for posterity's sake. You know, so I can see how much I (hopefully) improve.
And then this is what I worked on tonight. The picture isn't great. But here you go.
It's a bit finer than the previous fiber. But I'm finally catching on. Now I've used up all the rolags I had ready. If only I could ge t G to help with the washing and carding. I'm allowed to dream, aren't I?
