Sugar Camp Spin In

I'm having some folks over on Saturday for a spin in. This melty time of year always reminds be of maple syrup season back home-thus the 'Sugar Camp Spin In' was born. We're meeting around 10:00am, spinning, going out to lunch, spinning all afternoon, ordering takeaway for supper and spinning some more. I can't wait! I've always winged it when it came to spinning. I'm self taught so am looking forward to picking the brains of the more seasoned spinners who will be coming over. Rumor has it, someone may even spot me as I try Navajo plying again. I nearly strangled myself last time. I need professional help....in oh so many different ways.

I spent a couple of hours processing some beautiful roving I got at The Sheep and Wool Festival in Jefferson this fall into pencil roving. It's 100% Bluefaced Leicester from River's Edge Weaving Studio. Here's a little roving porn for you;

Mmmmmm....

Soft as feathers


Yum!

I KNOW right? It's MY color! Melted Peacock! I'm going to ply it with a black or grey. Can't wait 'til Saturday! {Molly Bee wanders off to ply up some ugly singles she's got on her bobbins so she can spin up this luscious confection on Saturday!}
