Spinning and Knitting

It’s been several months since I did any spinning. Finally this week I felt like pulling out my wheel, oiling it up, and prepping some roving.

My helpers, Cutie and Peaches.

The roving I dug out of my stash was some beautiful custom merino. Wonderful to work with! It took me a few days but I’m starting to get the feel for it.

My hands have not thanked me for the foreign work but luckily my salve did the trick and I was able to press on. My goal is to get good enough at spinning to be able to spin up yarn for a chemo hat for my mom. I’ve ordered some nice solid colored roving. Not sure merino will be the best option for summer though.

    My first impression on the first photo is that you were spinning yarn from kitty fur. Hope you are having fun.
