pea harvest yarn

I've been really busy in the garden these days. This morning, my back hurt from all the weeding I did yesterday, so I drank an extra cup of coffee, and started spinning on the Great Wheel while I was still wearing my pajamas. Before I knew it I had 88 yards of 14 wraps per inch...and my back felt much better. Guess I just needed to walk it off!


The wool roving was given to me by a friend, she had purchased it from Delly's Delights Farm, but it was processed by the Drafting Zone. It didn't have a name other than "side by side".


Later in the afternoon, I went out and picked the peas, ugh, there goes my back again! Since the roving didn't have a name, I am calling it "pea harvest". I still have a little of it left to spin, and I'm thinking maybe I will need to have another pajama morning soon.

I love the colors in this yarn. The name is just right for the yarn I think ;)

Lovely yarn - do you think we could persuade the medical profession to prescribe spinning for back trouble? I for one would happily follow a treatment regime like that!

I love the colors of that yarn, though from the title I expected to see a pea green yarn. lol

I'd love to see a picture of you working with your great wheel.

Nothing wrong with spinning in your pajamas! Pretty colors! and I like the idea that spinning will cure what ails us!
