Out of the corner
When I ran across this blog via Margene I felt it was exactly the sort of nudge I needed to give me the impetus to get my poor neglected wheel back out and give it a spin. I bought it in the summer 2 years ago and it seems like summertime is now spinning time to me. Somehow in the Christmas rush it falls by the wayside and before you know it sheep and wool season is upon us. Last fall I bought some gorgeous alpaca/silk blend from the Sheep Shed at Rhinebeck with plans to spin and knit it for Christmas but it never did get past the first bobbin full. This past weekend I squeezed in a bit of spinning between the painting and the garden cleanup and yesterday afternoon I managed to finish a second bobbinful. I hope to get some plying squeezed in this weekend at some point between the CT S&W and anniversary celebrations.
