Motivation














I said I was done spinning boring ol' white wool.........I have to eat those words!.....Why? Just look at the results of the skein from the dyeing board! It is incredible and if I have to spin boring to get this, I am willing to do it!

The yarn unwound without a single tangle-every step of the process was worth results like these!


The roving always looks so abused after dyeing-looks how beautiful it becomes after a bit of drafting (pulling the fibers apart along thier length just a bit to fluff it up again). A nice visual and it is all ready to spin now! (Except I am spinning some more blank wool first so I can dye again!)

FOR THE NON-HAT-WEARERS!

I know, I make so many hats but I hate to wear them--only in a blizzard will you find me wearing one since I got glasses--20+ years ago! lol...
