After all the holidays, all the family, all the eating, and all the marriage pressure I needed a little decompressing time if you will. I’m finally back and well rested. I was hoping to show you all the fabulous projects I finished while away, but, truth be told, I didn’t pick up my needles. I tried, but I just didn’t feel like it. Perhaps it was all the commotion and stress that comes with hanging out with both my parents and the boyfriend’s parents 24/7. I was tired or busy. Luckily for xmas I did receive some fiber goodness and a spindle; I love having something to ignore people with. My boyfriend’s mom picked up a spindle and roving while in Nova Scotia this summer for me, who knew. I don’t know anything about the spindle (uhh it’s made out of wood) or roving (so it’s wool and white) and apparently nothing about spinning.
When I unwrapped my gift I immediately had visions of all the fabulous yarn I would spin and knit up, but more importantly I imagined all the roving I would get to buy. After reading the one sheet this kit came with and some googling this is what I came up with:
I obviously have no clue what I’m doing. It’s my first yarn though (can I even call it yarn?) so I love all it’s “overspun and not spun at all’ character. I’m sure somewhere I could get 20 bucks for it. Or maybe 10?
