Creating yarn is a wonderful thing

My latest spinning goodness is featured above. The roving was from my dear friend Theresa over at CCFibers, and is lovely faulkland wool. Next step is to ply this, and figure out what to make out of it! I loe the colors so much - they remind me of a tropical oasis!

In this basket of goodies, you will find roving from another lovely friend, theurchiness. I finished this handspun just before leaving Corning, and the middle roving, called "Sean" - is my newest fiber. I can't wait to spin it up! Ah, the ideas I have! Perhaps this will be spun on the Ashford Traddy!

Creating yarn IS a wonderful thing. Other wonderful things worth celebrating on this hump day are:

* Rain in Las Vegas
* A sweet grapefruit
* Chihuahua kisses
* Connecting with people who love you
* Volunteering so that children can have safe drinking water.

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hi there! I found your blog through ravelry and wanted to let you know that your spinning is wonderful! I never spun on a drop spindle, just went right for the wheel, and I'm so impressed with how thin your yarn is. Do you have plans for it?

Hi Kate!

Thank you so much! I am going to ply the yarn, make it a 2-ply and it will probably make it's way into my shop! :)
