New Spinning Project

In January I started my own personal fiber club. I have now dug into only the second of seven bags. The second bag contains 4 oz of Lambspun Merino/silk blend which I picked up many years ago. In looking around the stash, I found some of this already spun which I am sure I won't be able to match. My spinning has changed in the ensuing years. The blend I have I picked up when I attended SOAR in 1996 or when I went to the vendors market when it was back at Snowbird or when it was in Park City, I can't remember for sure and I didn't keep any records.

I am not getting enough spinning time. Too much time is taken up by Facebook and playing stupid/entertaining games. I am going to try to cut back on the Facebook time though and do some more spinning. It is time! Our morning routine has changed also and that didn't help.

My knitting project is coming along, slowly. I will take it to knitting group tonight and see how much I can work on it. But then it is the third Wednesday and that means it's spinning night, so who knows if the knitting will get touched tonight.

Well, off to get ready for work and then Knit night. Happy knitting and spinning.

Really, Laura, stop that Facebook stuff and spin!!! You are the one who preached spinning for 15 minutes a day, and I always think of you when I do my 15. (Which I must admit does not happen each day).

I weakended and bought 2 pounds of a merino silk blend dyed in various tawny, green, blue shades all mixed together - Lu brought it to the guild meeting and in less than a minute it was mine, all mine. But first I have to try to spin up as much as possible of the remaining Notlwonk fiber so that I can qualify for a fleece this year. And I am still working my way through the 2 Columbia fleeces....

Anyway, have fun!

I certainly understand the time thing, and I don't even do facebook!! I need to make more time and finish the roving I am spinning. :)

Enjoy the roving stash!!
